Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuna casserole gets a bad rap, hardly anyone likes it, except at our house we love it. 

Tuna Noodle Casserole

1 1/2 cups wide egg noodles
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can mixed vegetables
2 can tuna (drain off water or oil)
12 saltine crackers
1/2 stick melted margarine

Cook noodles until not quite done.  In 1 1/2 quart casserole dish mix tuna, mixed vegetables, both soups and cooked noodles.  Crush crackers and mix with melted margarine; sprinkle on top of casserole.  Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.  When casserole is finished remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes and serve.

Beef and Cabbage Casserole

I came up with this simple and easy recipe one evening when I was tired of the same old stuff all the time. If you like cabbage rolls then you will probably like this dish.

1 lb. ground beef, browned, drained and rinsed under hot running water
1 medium head of cabbage, cleaned, cored and shredded
1 can (26-32 oz.) Spaghetti sauce, your choice of brand and flavor (I use Del-Monte Garlic & Herb)
Grafted Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Combine all ingredients in 11 X 15 oblong glass casserole dish. Bake in 350 degree oven for 45-60 minute. Sprinkle top with grated Parmesan Cheese (optional and tastes great without).

Serves 4-6

Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole

This is one of my favorite quick fix, dinner all in one dish meals. When my kids were young and I was working I could throw this together, put it in the oven and have almost an hour to get other things done.

Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups Minute rice (uncooked)
1 small can cream of chicken soup
1 small can cream of celery soup
1 #1 package frozen broccoli florets (broccoli cuts work well too)
2 cups water
Mortin’s Nature’s Seasoning to taste (Salt & pepper can be substituted)

In a 13″ x 9″ cake pan or casserole dish add rice & water. Stir in both cans of soup until smooth and no longer lumpy; stir in broccoli. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with Nature’s Seasoning and place on top of broccoli/rice mixture. Put into preheated 350 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.

Happy eatin’!
