Poor Man's Tuna Noodle Casserole

Robert Simons


When I was a young bachelor I could purchase a can of tuna on sale 4 cans for 1.00, cream of mushroom soup was 4 cans for a dollar and macaroni and cheese was 4 boxes for a dollar. I could make this meal for fewer than two dollars and have leftovers for lunch the next day. It was easy tasty and nutritious.
