Some snooty-patooties make this with, like, fresh tuna, artisanal pasta, pan-fried fresh mushrooms in bechamel sauce, and so forth, but it really goes like this:
TUNA NOODLE CASSEROLE
- cooked spaghetti cut in bits
- can of cream of mushroom soup
- onion powder
- 1/2 can of peas (or whole can, if preferred)
- crushed saltine crackers
- cubed Velveeta or other processed cheese-like substance
Mix and heat through until the Velveeta melts.
To my shame, I didn't have any Velveeta, and had to use rat cheese ... er, I believe the proper name for it is Colby, but I was raised to call it rat cheese.
YES, you need the crackers, even though it has spaghetti in it. AND you need the peas. Three starches are always better than one. Besides, the peas let you imagine you're eating something healthy.
Or make it all fancy-schmancy. Just enjoy it, that's all I ask.
