This is an easy recipe great for cold weather.
You will start with my Cream Sauce recipe. Make it in a large sauce pan. Make noodles either spiral (Rotini) or egg noodles which ever you prefer. Use 2 cups of dry noodles cook according to directions. Add to cream sauce along with 1 drained can of tuna and 1 cup of frozen peas or 1 can of canned peas. Pour into a 9×9 pan.
Add my homemade croutons to the top and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes.
This is the perfect winter meal. Having the oven on warms the house and the meal warms the insides. My mother made this for years, of course I have changed it up a bit.
- 2 C Dry Elbow Macaroni
- 1 Lb Ground Chuck Hamburger
- 1 Medium Onion chopped
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 Large (29 oz) Can Tomato Sauce
- 4-8 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Cook elbow macaroni according to directions. While it is cooking take a large frying pan. Brown the hamburger, drain. Add onion and saute. Add salt and pepper and tomato sauce. Stir in elbow macaroni. Pour into oven safe bowl or 11×9 dish.
Hint – when I use a bowl I pour in 1/2 the mixture topped with half the cheese and repeat. In the 11×9 pour in all the mixture and top with all the cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
