Food from childhood, Macaroni and Tuna Casserole -true comfort food!

I don't want to just write about everything we have for dinner. That would be boring for me to write as well as the reader to read but sometimes I make something that makes me feel very good.

Tonight I made a Macaroni and Tuna casserole that my mother used to make for us and I inturn made it for my children.

Very simply you cook the macaroni in plenty of salted boiling water until it is cooked.

In a large casserole dish mix the cooked macaroni with two tins of tuna fish in brine that have been drained and rinsed, add two sticks of finely chopped celery, salt&pepper and a tin of Campbells Condensed Mushroom Soup along with a can of milk.  Mix really well and smooth out. Top with a mixture of grated cheddar cheese and grated Parmegiano Reggiano cheese.

Heat in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese and serve.

I served ours with carrots from the market that I had poached in chicken stock until they were tender and tasty.

There were lots of umm's and yumm's this dinner time!
