Nana’s Recipe Box-Macaroni Casserole

My grandmother’s sister, Aunt Ruth, actually made this casserole first but once my mom and grandmother tasted it, they learned to make it too. We have had it at every Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner since then. It’s not hard to make and goes well with just about anything. Even my five finicky kids like it!

Boil two cups elbow noodles according to directions and drain.

Add half a chopped onion and half a chopped green pepper.

2 tbs. butter

1 can mushroom soup

1 can drained mushrooms

1/2 cup mayo

1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp to 1 tsp salt

mix until butter, cheese and soup have well blended with other ingredients

thin mixture with a little milk

Pour into greased shallow baking pan and cook at 350 for thirty minutes.

Great with any meat and veggie!
