"CLASSIC" TUNA NOODLE CASSEROLE

                                                (a Campbell Soup recipe)

 

1 can Campbell's condensed cream of celery soup

1/2 cup milk

2 cups cooked medium egg noodles (2 cups uncooked)

1 cup frozen peas, defrosted

2 tablespoons chopped pimento

2 cans (about 7 ounces each) tuna, drained and flaked

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs

 

In 1 1/2-quart casserole, combine soup and milk.  Stir in noodles, peas, pimento and tuna.  Bake at 400 degrees F. for 25 minutes or until hot; stir.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and stir in bread crumbs until lightly browned.  Top casserole with bread crumbs; bake 5 minutes more.  Serves 4.

GILDING THE LILY:  Use mushroom soup in place of celery.  Use short, curly fusili-type pasta instead of the noodles.
