Midwest Tuna Noodle Casserole

Nothing quite says comfort food than classic tuna noodle casserole. It’s one of Ryan’s all-time favorite meals, and since Mother Nature refuses to give us some spring-like temperatures, it’s still just cold enough to make. This recipe is quick and simple, and you easily can adapt it to better suit your taste.


2 cups cooked noodles (I use Creamettes elbow macaroni, but you also can use egg noodles)
1 can Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom soup 
1 can tuna, drained
1/2 cup celery (optional; Ryan likes the added veggies)
1/2 cup milk
Crushed potato chips for the top (I use classic Lay’s)
1. Cook and drain noodles, and place in 3 qt. casserole dish.
2. Add
remaining ingredients, and mix well. 
3. Crumble desired amount of potato chips on top,
and bake in the oven at 400 F for approximately 30 minutes or until the
casserole is bubbly. 


Tell me: What is your ultimate comfort food? Mine is straight-out-of-the-box Kraft Macaroni & Cheese!

    My mom used to make a similar recipe with egg noodles all of the time! We never had the crushed chips for topping though, and that sounds so good! Grilled cheese is probably one of my biggest comfort foods!

    This is my sister's comfort food and my go to I have no idea what to have for dinner or for when I'm to tired to make what I planned! My mom's recipe is almost the same–the biggest differences that we top ours with cheese!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
