Here is one I have cooked for many years:

NOODLES ROMANOFF

(serves 6-8)

Ingredients:

8 oz. egg noodles
12 oz. canned tuna, drained (OR use 12-16 oz. cooked salmon or cooked hamburger meat)
1 cup chopped mushrooms (you can do without, if you wish)
1½ cups reduced-fat sour cream
3/4 cup milk (2% is fine)
1½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
½ cup grated Gouda or Havarti cheese (optional)


Directions:

(1) Preheat the oven to 350 F.

(2) Cook the egg noodles in the usual way; drain.

(3) In a large mixing bowl, add the noodles, tuna/alternate meat, mushrooms (if using), sour cream, milk, and salt and pepper; mix to combine thoroughly.

(4) Pour the mixture into a greased 2-qt. casserole dish; top with cheese (if using), and cook for 35-40 minutes, until hot and bubbling.


NOTE: This recipe makes a lot; so you can halve it, or divide the entire amount and put into 2 smaller casserole dishes and then freeze one for later.

Black Bean Soup , process a can of black beans with chicken broth, salsa ,cumin,chili powder, garlic and heat. Add rice, corn or what you like and have on hand. If lucky cilantro and sour cream on top and or cheddar cheese!

Yes, new and/or love the ones you're with (oops, Crosby Stills Nash line).
I mean, the ones we have in our recipe files but haven't tried yet.
You have tuna and corn? Maybe you'll like this one.
