"I need something CHEESY"
- Wallace and Gromit
Cheesy Tuna Shell Casserole
1 tbsp margarine
1 medium onion
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp prepared mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (6 ounces) tuna (drained)
1 cup frozen peas
8 ounces shell pasta
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cook the shell pasta in boiling water (about 11 minutes) and drain.
2.) While the pasta is cooking (pronounced "pes-ta" if you're British *wink*) chop the onion.
3.) Melt the margarine over high heat in a 2-quart sauce pan and then add the chopped onions (saute 3 minutes).
4.) Stir in the soup, milk, worcestershire sauce, mustard, and pepper. Stir frequently and bring to a boil.
5.) Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until smooth.
6.) Add the tuna (separating it into flakes with a fork) and the peas.
7.) Combine the tuna mixture and the cooked shells in a 2 quart casserole dish.
8.) Crush the potato chips and sprinkle them over the top.
9.) Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes (until heated throughout.)
Picked off potato chips for consumption after eating several shells. Then picked through mixture for the peas.
Two Hours Later: "My teeth are very stinky. I must go change them."
Thirty-two year old review: Nice flavor and texture. I'll deal with the stinky teeth just to get this in my belly...
