Just because you want to make frugal recipes, doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice taste. This is the best of the tuna noodle casserole recipes, and I have been having it since I was a little kid. It is one of my all time favorites. The best part is you can feed a family of 6-8 for around $5! I would definitely classify it as one of my all time favorite comfort foods!
1 cans tuna in water (drained) (75 cents)
1 cans sweet corn (drained) (65 cents)
1 cans cream of mushroom soup (70 cents)
8 oz cheddar cheese ($1.29 bought locally)
16 oz box of macaroni noodles (50 cents)
Total Cost $3.89 or 48 cents a serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place a large pot full of water on stove to boil. Once boiling place noodles in, and boil them until tender (approximately 15 minutes)
Open all cans, drain (if applicable), and place in 13X9 baking dish.
Drain pasta and place in baking dish. Then use large spoon to mix all ingredients together until pasta is thoroughly coated.
