Tuna Casserole

Since we're going out of town I haven't been to the grocery store this week. I wanted to use up items from our pantry that have just been sitting around. So, I threw together this Tuna Casserole.

Patrick's review: B (only a B!!!!) lol He said it needed more cheese (which it did) and he wanted more bread crumbs. I thought it was a bit bland so next time I'll add even more spices to it.
Here's what I threw together.
2 Cans chunk tuna
1-2 Cups elbow macaroni, cooked per pkg directions
1 Large cream of mushroom soup
1/2 Cup milk
4 Tablespoons sour cream
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Few dashes of Tabasco
Salt & Pepper
Sharp cheddar cheese
Bread crumbs
1 pkg frozen vegetables (carrots, green beans, asparagus)

In a large bowl combine tuna, cream of mushroom, sour cream, milk, vegetables. Add spices to taste (onion, garlic powders, salt, pepper and Tabasco). Heat this mixture in the microwave for about 2 minutes on high. Mix macaroni and tuna mixture in a casserole dish, fold in cheese. Top with cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake in oven (uncovered) at 350 for approx 20 minutes until cheese is bubbly.

Hi Nicole, thanks for the visit to my blog. I decided to check out the Tuna Casserole recipe.

When you say 1 large can of Cr. of Mushroom you mean what size? and do you think canned veggies would work since I don't have any frozen?
