Why I Love This Recipe

When I was growing up, my mom made this every time my dad was out of town because he didn't like it. I make it a little differently now than my mom did but it always brings back happy memories.

Cooks Suggestions:

I now use chicken instead of tuna. I prefer to use fresh grated chicken breasts instead of the canned kind.

You can use egg noodles instead of elbow, but I prefer the taste elbows give the casserole.

I always omit the peas and mushrooms. I liked them as a kid but I can't eat them as an adult.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb elbow macaroni (or about one regular sized box)
1 can albacore tuna, drained
1/4 cup mayonaise
1/2 cup milk
few dashesgrated parmesan cheese
frozen or fresh peas
mushrooms, drained


Prepare pasta according to package, drain.

Mix the pasta with the remaining ingredients.

If dry, add more milk and/or mayonaise to your liking.

Bake for about 30 min at 350.
