  • LOL @ anon...

    My mom used to make it, too, but we loved it. She used the recipe from the Better Homes & Garden New Cook Book, which is the same recipe I use, except my "new" cook book is about 25 years old. I'm not sure if more recent editions have the recipe in them or not, sorry :(

  • I have a couple - not exact, as I don't follow recipes. I have a big family too, so these make large amounts. Numero uno: 2 boxes Velveeta mac & cheese, cook as directed. Stir in 1 can of cream of whatever soup, 2-3 packets (the bigger ones) tuna, and 1 lb frozen or 3 cans peas. Pour into a greased casserole. Crush 1-2 stack Ritz (or generic) crackers, mix into 1/2-1 stick melted butter or margarine and spread on top. Bake til heated through & crackers are crunchy.

    Numero dos: Cook 1 lb wide egg noodles. 4 cans cream of whatever, 1-2 cans milk, 2-3 packets tuna, 1 lb frozen or 3 cans peas. Heat through, serve (I don't top & bake this one).
