Notes

  1. We like to use egg noodles in this recipe, but you can use any small pasta that you like.
  2. We use cream of mushroom soup, but any cream of soups will work, I also have a soup substitute recipe above.
  3. This can be frozen, it is best to freeze before baking, see my tips above.
  4. There is so much that can be added to this recipe, above I name some substitutions, additions and other optional toppings.
  5. This can be doubled to serve a larger family or for a potluck.
