1 (10.75 ounce) can

1 (6 ounce) can

crushed potato chips, or as needed
It was great, thanks for giving me a place to start!
I did make some modifications:
* Whole Wheat Rotini instead of egg noodles
* 2 cans of tuna
* Chopped onion
* Chopped garlic
* Shredded cheddar cheese (just kept going til I had a nice, thick layer)
* Bread crumbs instead of crisps
* Fish Marsala spice mix
Served with a side of broccoli and Carlsberg Elephant beer. My first Tuna Casserole!
It was ok. I don't think I'll be making this one again....
This is a great base recipe. I skip the milk and potato chips. Not necessary. I use shredded mild cheddar to top with instead of velveeta. I add thawed frozen peas into the mix and voila!! Just like Mom used to make.
This was so easy and good. My husband loved it too. I didn't have Cream of Mushroom soup so I substituted a can of New England Clam Chowder. For the topping I used shredded cheddar and crushed Sea Salt & Pepper chips. Yum!
I tweaked this a bit, added in a can Cream of Celery Soup with the Mushroom soup, and some frozen peas...topped it with some crispy chow mein noodles!
I added 1/4 cup of onions, increased the cheese to 3 slices and used a 9x9 baking dish. It was awesome! Just like I remember having when mom used to make it. I'm saving this recipe for sure.
I was looking for a recipe that tasted like my Mom's. This is it; delicious and easy to make. Only changes were to add an additional can of condensed cream of celery soup, a cup of chopped onions and a cup of frozen peas.
Loved it! Doubled everything. Didn't have any cream of mushroom soup looked up recipe here for base cream soup (Easy - flour, broth, milk salt n pepper) added onions, used shredded cheese and ruffles chips. The chips made it extra yummy! Hubby and picky kids all had seconds :)
