Another one is tuna noodle casserole
1 (8 ounce) package wide egg noodles
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 (6 ounce) can tuna, drained
1 (15 ounce) can peas, drained or a handful or 2 of frozen

bake at 350 for 30 minutes

boil in salt water and drain noodles
in saucepan, combine flour, butter, and salt. Stir until butter is melted and ingredients are combined evenly. Add milk, and whisk until the sauce thickens (usually it is at the proper consistency by the time it begins to boil). Add cheese to mixture, and whisk until cheese is melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in tuna, peas, and noodles. Spread evenly in prepared dish.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
