Put noodle/cheese mixture into a casserole dish. Add your can of soup and one tbsp. of parmesan and mix well. Season to taste. Top with remaining two tbsp. of parmesan and bake in your preheated 375-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy. Serves 4.
*Use cayenne only if you like foods with a spicy kick!
Tuna noodle casserole became popular back in the early 1940s, thanks to a recipe made famous by none other than Campbell's. Looking for ways to promote their Cream of Mushroom soup, they created recipes that used the product, and this one stuck. In fact, soon after Campbell's promoted their recipe, this dish became all the rage. No surprise there, though, since it's typically made with deliciously-fattening calorie-packed things like creamy soup, milk, butter, noodles and cheese. Eeeks! Just forget everything you know about old-fashioned, fatty tuna casserole, and whip up a batch of HG's Rockin' Tuna Noodle Casserole today. Your friends and family will be mighty impressed.
