Easiest Tuna Casserole Ever

Back in the leaner days when I was young and just starting out on my own, a friend taught me how to make this dish.  It is an inexpensive, warm, tasty dinner.  I had no idea this was a family staple!  My dad didn’t like cooked tuna so we never had it cooked.  Anyway, I have tried variations of this dish but this is my favorite version.  Enjoy!

  • Egg Noodles
  • Can of tuna
  • Can of cream of mushroom soup

You can add onion and garlic for added taste but not necessary.  Cook the egg noodles as directed on package.  Drain and return to pan.  Add tuna and cream of mushroom soup.  Mix thoroughly. This is pretty tasty if you stop right here and serve it up.

However, you can also transfer this into a baking dish/pan and top with cheese and crushed Ritz crackers or chips and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Very simple dinner but usually a big winner!

Shrimp and Grits

This is my own recipe that I came across by accident.  When I was living alone, I experimented a lot with different combinations of foods that were fast, somewhat healthy, and good for just one.  It isn’t spicy or cajun…it is a pretty simple little dish but oh, so yummy.  I had no idea that this was something nicer restaurants serve only they usually spice it up a bit more.  Anyway, that is why there are no measurements.  All of the ingredient amounts are dependent upon what you like.  I like a lot of onion and celery in mine.

  • Package of medium shrimp
  • Onions
  • Celery
  • Olive Oil
  • Quaker Oats Quick Grits
  • Garlic salt

In a skillet, saute onions and celery in the olive oil; season with garlic salt.  Add shrimp to the pan and cook until shrimp is pink, cooked through.  Meanwhile, cook grits as directed on package.  Top grits with shrimp mixture.  Garnish with your favorite cheese.  Parmesan works great on this dish.
