Tuna Casserole

Adapted from Imperrfections

This is one of those cheap and easy dinners that everyone should know how to throw together. I am usually not a huge fan, but this recipe was great and even better the next day. You could easily substitute the tuna with chicken or have no meat at all and it would still be good.

8 oz (225 grams) pasta
5 Tbsp butter
3 cloves garlic
1 medium onion
3-4 stalks celery
3-4 carrots
2 cups cream of mushroom soup
1 cup diced mushrooms
1/4 cup flour
2 1/2 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

2 cans tuna
1 cup peas
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup parmesan

Boil water, cook the noodles, drain and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350
In a large pan saute onion, garlic, carrots, celery in butter until soft. Then add mushroom soup (or saute mushrooms and butter, whisk in flour then slowly add the milk) and add salt, pepper, tuna, and peas. Add in the noodles and pour into a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese and bake 15-20 minutes
