Is there a household that never had tuna noodle casserole? I tend to doubt it. This, as best I remember, is the way it was served to us in the 50's.
1 lb. elbow macaroni
salt and pepper
1 can of tuna (probably the cheapest available)
I don't remember if there were any breadcrumbs involved.
That's all there was to it. We liked it, and it fed a family of seven a good lunch.
I hope you've enjoyed 1950's week. It's been fun for me to call up memories of the food we ate. Given that I'm dealing with recollections of from 50 to 60 years ago, it's been a challenge. Bottom line: everything I posted this week is something I would love to eat again.
My good friend, Jenn (jennsfoodjourney), mentioned to me the other day that her mother would use a can of cream of celery soup in the tuna noodle casserole. That actually sounds pretty good.
