Tuna Noodle Casserole

Growing up my mom used to make this dish for picnics in the summer. I never really ate it until we went to a picnic at her coworkers lake house and I have loved it ever since! This dish for me has turned into a lunch dish and I can usually get 2 lunches out of this.

There isn’t a real recipe to this and it really can be manipulated anyway you would like.

1-2 servings of noodles (I usually use elbow or bowties, but went with shells this time. Your choice!)

1 can of tuna – drained

1-2 tablespoons mayonaisse (This will vary depending on your mayo taste)

Carrots/Celery (optional, your choice)

Paprika to sprinkle on top (optional)

Once you have drained the pasta, run it under cold water for a quick minute so the noodles don’t stick together. (I usually run it under the cold water while it is still in the strainer.) In a bowl mix pasta, tuna, mayo, and carrots/celery until everything is mixed in. (I mix mine in the pot I made the noodles in once it is drained) Pour in serving bowl and put in fridge. Serve cold!

 

Tuna Noodle

It doesn’t take long to make and it really goes great at a summer picnic, but it also works well for taking for lunch.

Enjoy!
