  • 12 ounce egg noodles dry
  • 15 ounce tuna drained (I used 3 5 oz cans tuna packed in water)
  • 10.5 ounce cream of celery soup (I used Campbell's 10.5 oz can)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • ¾ cup potato chips crumbled


  • Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • Cook noodles: Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • Mix all ingredients together: To the bowl add the remaining ingredients (excluding the potato chips) and stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper as needed. I only added pepper, but feel free to season with salt as you prefer.
  • Transfer to a casserole dish: Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with cooking spray and add the noodle mixture to the casserole dish. Sprinkle with the potato chips. 
  • Bake: Bake for 30 minutes or until heated through.
  • Serve: Serve warm and enjoy!
