Recipe by Becky Wergers
"This was a favorite in my home growing up and now it's a favorite of my family as well. I double the recipe these days for my husband and three children. For a change of pace I add canned chopped green chilies and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, use pasta shells or spirals, or top the casserole with sliced American or cheddar cheese instead of breadcrumbs."

1 (12 ounce) package
chopped green bell pepper
red bell pepper, chopped
1 (11 ounce) can
condensed cream of Cheddar cheese soup
1 (6 ounce) can
ground black pepper to taste
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Made this last night with a few changes. I used peas instead of green peppers, added 2 beaten eggs, 1/3 cup milk instead of 1/2, about 8 oz tuna instead of 6 oz., and I used "No-Yolks" noodles. I topped it with a little shredded sharp cheddar and three-cheese style bread crumbs. It was very tasty and I'll definitely make it again, except next time I'll add some plain, fat-free yogurt or sour cream to make it a little more saucy. My 3-yo literally gobbled it up. Thanks!
This recipe was easy to make, but just "okay" according to my family. I thought my kids would love it, but they weren't too crazy about it. It was a little too dry, I would either cut down on the amount of pasta or add a little extra cheese to combat that.
Very good!! Easy recipie! I added 1/2c milk and 1/4c sourcream so it wasnt so dry and 1/4tsp cayanne for a lil kick and it came out great!!
I really liked this one! A little on the dry side, so will put in 2 cans of soup next time. I also used the "fried" onions and pimento instead of cooking the onion and peppers. I put sliced american cheese on top and the bread crumbs. YUMMY! So fast and easy to fix.
Very good! I used 1 10oz can of chicken instead of tuna and added green peas and diced carrots. I used a can of cheddar broccoli soup, 1/2 cup milk, a few shakes of garlic powder and 2 tbls of reduced fat mayo. Not really the recipe but I did use it as my base. No regrets!
This recipe is easy to adapt to your time schedule. I didn't have time to saute so I used dried onions instead of fresh and skipped the peppers, added a couple dashes of tabasco to make up for the peppers and a dash of Worcester sauce. I substituted Mrs Dash for the salt and it added a nice kick. Since I didn't saute it saved about 20 minutes prep. We were eating in about 30 minutes from when I started.
Very good! I used a can of broccoli cheese soup, about a cup of sour cream, and a hand full of cheese with the mix. Then when after I put everything in the pan I filled it with milk! Very moist and yummy!
Very yummy - a little on the dry side, next time I will use more soup. Great dish to prepare ahead of time and just pop it in the oven after a busy day at work. I added fresh jalapenos to the mix and it was even better the next day!!
