Look no further than Old Fashioned Tuna Noodle Casserole for all those busy folks looking for a portion of quick and delicious comfort food. The Campbell's Soup original recipe was created in the 1940s as a quick and affordable meal to satisfy everyone. This is still a recipe that is great to prepare in advance and pop into the oven for a complete meal in 30 minutes. We've kept all the traditional ingredients of egg noodles, flaked tuna, cream of mushroom & celery soup, and frozen mixed vegetables and added in a dash of Italian seasoning and mustard for some added flavor. If this isn't already a regular dish at your home, it soon will be.
