Invent Your Own Casserole

Originally posted in What’s for Dinner, February 2007 by: cau

I found this formula among the trivia I save for just such a "can't
think of a good tip" moment. I don't know where it came from and wish I
did. It is a great idea when you are in a hurry and have to come up with
something from your pantry. Considering it uses so much soup it might
have been Campbell's.

1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of celery soup, undiluted
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano,

1 (14 1/2-ounce) can cut green Italian beans, drained
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can sweet peas, drained
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can asparagus cuts and tips, drained
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (13 1/2-ounce) can chopped spinach

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1 cup uncooked regular rice
4 cups uncooked wide egg noodles
3 cups uncooked small pasta shells

2 (6-ounce) cans solid white tuna in spring water, drained and flaked
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
2 cups chopped cooked ham
2 cups chopped cooked turkey
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained

1 (3-ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
1/4 cup chopped red or green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chilies
1 (1 1/4-ounce) envelope taco seasoning mix

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1 cup round buttery crackers, crushed
1 cup herb-seasoned stuffing mix

Combine 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream, 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, 1
teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper with Sauce Maker (omit sour cream
and milk when using tomatoes). Stir in Vegetable, Pasta/Rice,
Meat/Fish/Poultry, and, if desired, Extras. Spoon into a lightly greased
13- x 9-inch baking dish.
Bake, covered, at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle
with Toppings; bake 10 more minutes.
Makes 6 servings.

Chicken Casserole: Cream of chicken soup, asparagus, rice, chicken,
Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs
Ham Casserole: Cream of celery soup, green beans, wide egg noodles,
ham, garlic, 2 portions Swiss cheese
Turkey Casserole: 3 cans diced tomatoes, sweet peas, small pasta

portions mozzarella cheese

Sounds like a good one to put inside my "what do I fix tonight?" book!
