Tuna Noodle Hot Dish

Tonight we satisfied our casserole addiction with possibly the most classic casserole there is: Tuna Noodle Hot Dish. I hadn't had this since I was a kid, but it's been a staple in my fiance's family for years, with some very specific recipes and ingredients being preferred. We didn't get ahold of the official family recipe, but did our best to approximate it - and the results were quite tasty, and of course, comforting.

Tuna Noodle Hot Dish
1 (10.75 ounce) can Cream of Celery Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peas
2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, drained and flaked
2 cups hot cooked medium egg noodles
1 small bag of sour cream & onion potato chips
a couple handfuls of mozzerella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix soup, milk, peas, tuna and noodles in 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Crumble potato chips on top, then sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5 additional minutes or until hot and cheese has melted.
