This is an adoptee recipe. Larry (My Hubby) likes the old fashioned Tuna casserole once in a while, so I thought I would give this version a home in my recipe box. And there are a few different ingredients so I can tweak it some :)

Ingredients

  • 2 c
    egg noodles, cooked in salted water and drained
  • 1/4 tsp
    thyme
  • 1/4 tsp
    seasoned salt, ( i prefer johnny's)
  • IF YOU LIKE YOUR TUNA CASSEROLE WITH STRONGER TUNA FLAVOR, USE CHUNK LIGHT TUNA, FOR MILDER, USE ALBACORE, EITHER ONE SHOULD BE WATER PACKED

  • 1- 2 can
    6 oz tuna, drained and flaked (reserve the juice)
  • 1/2 can
    cream of chicken soup (about 6 oz.)
  • 2/3 c
    milk
