DELICIOUS TUNA CASSEROLE/KUGEL
Submitted by Michelle Shub of Marietta, GA
1 packet egg noodles(lokshen) - wide
3 eggs (or 1 container "egg beaters")
3/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise (Hellman's 1% fat)
dash of Tabasco sauce - smaller dash if for kids
salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, oregano(dried)...to taste
2 - 3 cans tuna in water....I add 1/2 can salmon for extra flavor.
Pre-heat oven to 375*, grease 9 X 13" casserole dish,or use disposable pan. Cook noodles according to directions on packet,drain and cool.
Mix together drained tuna, mayo, spices - may be a little thick.
Beat eggs well, then add to tuna mixture.(for fluffier consistency, beat eggs with electric mixer....egg-beaters can be beaten this way too.)
Gently fold into noodles, taking care not to break noodles.
If wanted, you can add a dash of marg. on top, or use "Pam" spray, so top will brown nicely.
Bake, covered, in 375* oven for 45 - 60 mins, then uncover, bake for additional 10 - 15 mins.(depending on how hot your oven gets.) Serve hot, add accompanying green salad, and dinner is done!
