Recipe | Ash Trash Meal | Tuna Casserole
Servings: 2 hungry people


1/2 box spaghetti noodles, leftover & cooked
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup cottage cheese
2 tbsp mayo
1 tsp better than bouillon vegetable
1/4 cup frozen peas
1 can tuna in water, drained
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried chives


mixing bowl
measuring spoons
mixing tool
can opener
baking dish


In mixing bowl, use the end of your mixing tool to cut the leftover spaghetti into smaller bite size pieces. Add rest of ingredients. Stir to combine.
Bake in wood cookstove oven while uncovered until done. For a regular oven, 425 for 20-30 minutes while uncovered or until done. Carefully remove from oven. Enjoy immediately.


Substitutions are welcomed here. If you don't have one of the cream-based items, you could sub for cream cheese, shredded cheeses, etc. Substitute for a different veggie, just keep all pieces small and similar sized so they cook evenly. Don't have tuna? Substitute with canned chicken.

For cat owners: Give them the drained tuna water. They will LOVE it!

FYI: 'Ash Trash Meals'  are recipes made up of leftovers and ingredients we have on hand. I do not go by a recipe, except whatever comes up in my brain at the time. Honestly, it's been the hardest thing for me to put these recipes to words because they are of-the-moment random creations. Many substitutions could be had! Experimenting with food that is perfectly good but may have otherwise been discarded is fun. Worst case scenario? It doesn't turn out and the chickens get a nice treat. Best case scenario? It's a delicious once in a lifetime meal that's similar to seeing bigfoot in the woods.
