This tuna and macaroni casserole is a flavorful combination, and it's a whole meal in one dish. Mixed vegetables and hard-cooked eggs add the nutritional content, and condensed soup makes the sauce easy.

  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper (green, chopped)

  • 1 can tuna (flaked white, drained)
