1 can of peas. .50
I serve with a crusty bread (or crackers) and fresh fruit. Feeds 4-6 adults.

My mom used to make something similar. She used egg noodles, 2 cans cream of mushroom soup, 2 cans of peas, and 2 cans of tuna. She would drain one can of peas and use the liquid from the other can to break up the soup.

I use cream of celery and frozen peas, about a cup. I don't boil the peas but put them in the strainer and pour the hot pasta and water over them to lightly cook them. Stir everything together and heat through. Feeds 4-6.

Hi, btw.
