This is an incredibly easy way to make tuna noodle casserole, and you will love the creamy results. This recipe, which is simple enough for a beginner cook to follow, is made with cream of mushroom soup, which many people do not eat by itself but love adding it to casseroles and other dishes. The dish also contains peas, although you can swap them for cooked slices of leek if you prefer, or even broccoli florets.

The egg noodles make this recipe more filling and of course the canned tuna eliminates the need for cooking fresh tuna (and also keeps your costs down – this is a budget meal.) This casserole is quite small so either serve it with crusty bread or make a simple salad to serve on the side. The recipe is also very easy to double or triple if you do want to make more of it.

If you prefer not to use fresh breadcrumbs in this tuna noodle casserole then buy the seasoned ones and halve the amount. Toss them in a tablespoon of melted butter before adding them to the casserole. Use freshly grated parmesan too; the ready-powdered kind lacks flavor.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
