Tuna Casserole

Baked penne pasta with tuna and cheese


  • 2 cups uncooked small macaroni or penne pasta (I like Giant Eagle GF brand the most)
  • 2 cans (5 oz) albacore tuna, drained (any GF tuna in water)
  • 1 can (10.75 oz)  condensed  cream of chicken soup & cream of mushroom soup (refer to cream of base recipe for food allergy/intolerant people/families)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) green peas
  • 1- 1/4 cup milk (unsweetened non dairy milk or lactose free milk)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (cabot naturally lactose free cheddar cheese)
  • 1/2 can (6 oz) french fried onion rings (optional) (not for GF people)


  • Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  • While macaroni is cooking, mix the rest of the ingredients (except onion rings) in a sauce pan over medium heat until cheese is melted.
  • Drain macaroni and combine with the sauce. Pour into a buttered (smart balance) casserole dish.
  • Bake covered at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place onion rings on top. Return to the oven and bake uncovered for 10 minutes until the casserole is bubbly and onion rings are toasted.
  • Let stand for about 15 minutes before serving.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
