Frugal Mom Meal #12: Ten-Star Tuna Casserole

If you grew up in a Catholic household, then you’re familiar with the fact that Tuna Casserole was in constant rotation of the family meal plan.

I love my mom’s recipe, and hadn’t made it in quite a long time. When I sat down to do this month’s menu plan, I wanted to include it to satisfy a craving for it that I’ve been harboring since the summer.

Then I found this Tuna Casserole recipe from Recipezaar, and I knew immediately that I wanted to make it. The recipe strays from the norm, calling for cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom, and adding chopped celery to the mix instead of peas.

It was fairly easy to make, with the boiling of noodles and chopping of celery and onions the only “hard” work involved. Mix it all up in a bowl and spread it in a casserole dish, top with some cheddar cheese (I also added some bread crumbs to the topping), and in 30 minutes, you’ve got one heck of a family staple just begging to be eaten.

Here’s what mine looked like after I pulled it out of the oven lastnight. I’d have taken some pictures of what it looked like on a plate, but it got gobbled up so fast that I didn’t get the chance to snap a shot.

This evening, we returned to that ultra-awesome, super-fantastic To Die For Crock Pot Roast. No pictures available for that one either, since we ate half and put half away for future use. (Click here for what it looked like the first time we made it.)

Tomorrow, we’re having Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole . . . who’s coming over for dinner?

PS: Remember, if you’re going to leave a comment, it won’t appear right away. I have to monitor them all of the time now, and if you’re not a spammer or a punk trying to get his page links by posting them in my comments section, then your comment will appear within an hour of writing it. Thank you for your patience!
