Pepper Plants are Still Producing
I wanted to use them for dinner tonight so I put them in a delicious tuna casserole
Quick & Easy Tuna Casserole
*I've been making this recipe for years. It's a comfort food for us. I sometimes add other veggies- like tonight I added sliced carrots along with the other peppers from the garden. I usually leave the onions and bell pepper raw, but since I was adding sliced carrots, I sauteed all the veggies for 5 min. before adding them in.
2 cans tuna (in water) drained
1 can of condensed Cream of Celery Soup
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 medium bell pepper, chopped
dash of pepper
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar (or favorite) cheese
2 - 3 cups of Egg noodles, cooked al dente' & drained (I cut back on the amt. of noodles when I'm dieting)
Mix soup and mayo well and combine with other ingredients in a casserole dish, adding cheese last. Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes (or until cheese has melted and casserole is bubbly).
