Tuna Casserole Recipes

8 oz. noodles of choice-we like seashells
1 can healthy request cream mushroom soup
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 Tablespoons-4 oz. cream cheese
2 cans tuna or less if you desire
1 small pkg. frozen peas
Cook noodles, drain and place in baking dish. Sprinkle top of noodles with peas. The hot noodles will unthaw the peas quickly but you can add the peas several minutes before the noodles are done cooking and drain peas and noodles together. In mixing bowl, add cream of mushroom soup, yogurt, cream cheese and tuna. Stir until well blended.  Season with pepper and stir into noodles. Serve immediately.

Healthy Tuna Casserole

If you want a healthy version of tuna casserole, omit the cream of mushroom soup and add the following:
1 Cup cottage cheese
1/4 Cup low fat mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Mix these three ingredients and stir into cooked noodles. If your kids are like mine and they don't like the cottage cheese curds puree in blender before adding to the noodles.
