I’ll be using this to make Tuna Casserole a lot during Lent – it’s very cheap and easy – and my mom made it a lot when we were kids and fish was too expensive.  We were very sqeamish about tuna as kids – to which mom always replied brightly, “Sorry Charlie!” – and eventually this was dubbed “Sorry Charlie Casserole”… which is perfect because when you come to think of it Charlie Tuna was probably REAL sorry to be in this :)

Mom’s “Sorry Charlie” Casserole

  • 1 Can/Pouch of Tuna (in water) 
  • 1 Box of Macaroni & Cheese 
  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom
  • A couple slices of Velveeta (optional)
Make Mac & Cheese as usual.  Drain tuna and stir into completed mac & cheese.  Stir in Cream of Mushroom Soup.  Add a little extra milk if needed. (My mom always added a couple sliced of Velveeta to “hide” the tuna from us! In my house, Velveeta = LOVE.)
To see another recipe in which Velveeta plays a soul-warming role, check out my recipe for Crockpot Cheesy Chicken Potato Chowder!
