Tuna Noodles [Recipe]

Tuna Noodles
Brenda Patterson

This is one of our faves, the kids really like it!  It’s simple and an often ‘go to option’ when we “don’t have anything to eat…”

1 Bag of egg noodles (12 or 16 oz)
1 Can of tuna
1 Can cream of mushroom soup

Prepare the noodles as directed on the package.  In your serving dish (microwave safe), mix the can of tuna with the cream of mushroom soup.  Pour milk into the empty cream of mushroom soup can and add that to the tuna/soup mixture in the bowl.  Drain the noodles and then add to the milk/tuna/soup mixture and stir it all together.  Microwave for 6 minutes.
