Ingredients

4 c
water
1/2 tsp
minced garlic
1/2
chopped small onion
1 box
farelle noodles (or your favorite shape)
1 box
scalloped potatoes
4 can(s)
tuna, packed in water, undrained
1 can(s)
sweet corn, undrained
1/4 c
milk
garlic powder, to taste
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1/2 c
shredded cheddar cheese, reserve enough to sprinkle on top

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, bring water, minced garlic & onion to rapid boil. Add noodles & dehydrated potatoes. You are only cooking these about 3/4 of the way done. (I always cook noodles & potatoes of any kind in garlic water to help infuse a little taste into them.) Keep an eye on pot but move on to step 2.
2
In a large mixing bowl, drain the juices from all the cans of tuna & corn. Add milk & stir in the season packet from the scalloped potatoes until dissolved.
3
Add tuna, corn, cheese (reserving some for a final sprinkle on top) & spices to liquid mix & stir thoroughly.
4
When pasta & potatoes are about 3/4 of the way done, drain the water, being sure to keep the onion & minced garlic. Stir in gently with tuna mixture.
5
Grease a 10x14 lasagna pan & pour the mixture into the pan. Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining cheese & broil on high on the top rack for approximately 5 minutes, or until cheese bubbles & browns. Serve & enjoy!
