Ingredients

3 ounces egg noodles
cooked al dente, drained
½ teaspoon thyme
*
10 ounces soup, cream of celery
prepared, about 1/2 can prepared with milk
½ cup celery
coarsely chopped
¼ cup green bell peppers
coarsely chopped
¼ cup water chestnuts

6 ounce tuna, canned

¼ cup yogurt

Directions

This is a great way to use up leftover home made soup or the rest of a can of soup.

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Cook the noodles until just barely tender, slightly under as the cooking will finish in the oven. Drain thoroughly.

In a medium pot heat the soup over medium heat. Add the thyme, celery, green pepper, water chestnuts and scallions.

Once beginning to boil turn off the heat and add ½ the cheese, stir until melted then add the yogurt (sour cream or mayo), noodles and tuna and stir gently until combined. Season with black pepper if desired.

Transfer to to 1 quart casserole dish.

Sprinkle top with remaining grated cheddar cheese and almonds.

Bake for about 20 minutes until bubbly and lightly browned.

An excellent tuna casserole, easy to prepare with great textures. It's a great excuse to make up a batch of home made soup because I know the leftover soup can be used up in this recipe. Used a sour cream celery potato soup for this photo.
