  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a glass casserole dish with butter-flavored vegetable oil or olive oil .

  2. In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in the butter or olive oil until vegetables are barely soft, not mushy. Add mushroom soup, water, peas, and black pepper. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve soup . When it begins to boil, turn off heat and gently fold in tuna with liquid.

  3. Add cooked pasta noodles and toss to coat with sauce. Pour into prepared casserole and top with bread crumbs or potato chips. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes until heated through and topping is lightly browned.

  4. Yield: 4 to 6 servings Variations :

  5. This basic recipe has so many variations that it is difficult to describe them all. If you don't have celery, use all onion, and vice versa. Broccoli may be substituted for the peas. Chicken or clam broth can be used instead of water or milk. Any canned or cooked seafood can be substituted for the tuna, and it also works with leftover or canned poultry . Some folks like to add cheese to the sauce or as a topping. Low-fat , low-calorie, and/or low-salt products may be used with equal success. Feel free to modify to suit your own tastes.
