This one's a personal favorite: Tuna Casserole 3 cans tuna chunks in oil (I usually go for a spicy brand) 1 can all-purpose cream 1 can cream of mushroom 1 can mushrooms 1 egg a little milk to taste spices (onions and garlic) pasta (I use lingguini or fettuccini) grated cheese Prepare pasta according to package directions. Set aside to cool. In a large pan, saute onions and garlic until aroma comes out. Put tuna (drained of its oil) in the pan and gently stir. Saute tuna until cooked. Add all-purpose cream and cream of mushroom. Add an egg (just break it over the pan) and a little milk to taste. Stir until you achieve a thick, even mixture. Pour mixture over the pasta. Add grated cheese on top. Enjoy! :-)

I love Pasta too but I also love seafood and this is a great receipe if you love both: (You could probably sub smoked turkey or ham if you don't like seafood) 12 oz tagliatelle 4 tablespoons butter cut up 2/3 cup cream 8 ounces smoked salmon cut up 1 sm buch arugula chopped Lot's of pepper & maybe a little salt Cook pasta according to directions. Put a large bowl into a larger pan of simmering water (double boiler style) Put the butter & cream into the bowl and swish it around until the butter melts. Add the other ingredients and that's it....This is so rich and wonderful. It tastes best served with a vinagriette dressed green salad.
