Cook Time:

20-25 minutes



Other Serving Size



1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

1/2 cup of milk

2/3 cup Parmesan Cheese

1 1/3 cup Minute Rice

1/2 tsp Oregano

Pepper to taste

1 - 1 lb can whole tomatoes, drained (save tomatoe juice)

1 1/2 cup water

1/2 Onion, thinly sliced

3 - small  (5 oz) cans of StarKist Tuna, drained  (I use Tuna in Oil)

1/4 cup sliced olives (optional)

1/2 cup (at least) crushed potato chips


  1.  Heat cream of mushroom soup, milk and cheese until cheese has melted.
  2. Grease shallow baking dish (9x11). Evenly add Minute Rice, Oregano and pepper.
  3. Drain tomatoes, saving tomato juice and add enough water to equal the 1 1/2 cup in the recipe. (The extra tomato juice just adds to the flavor.) Pour tomato juice/water mixture over rice.
  4. Slice tomatoes and layer on top of rice.
  5. Then add layer of sliced onion, layer of tuna and sprinkle with olives.
  6. Pour soup mixture evenly over top and sprinkle on crushed potato chips.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. 


Note:  I first had this casserole at a girlfriend's house in the 60's.  I've fixed it frequently ever since and now even my grand-children ask for it.
