Captain's Delight

Folks,
My housemate Bruce made this recipe a few weeks back. Its his Grandmother's recipe, and I must say we all enjoyed it. He sent me a copy afterwards and here it is.

Enjoy,
amlan

Captain's Delight

1 cup mushroom soup (1 can Campbell`s)
1/2 cup milk (generous half cup)
2/3 cup grated cheese (I used Vermont sharp cheddar)
1 1/3 cups Uncle Ben`s rice (I suggest you use a Basmati variety, and soak it/semi boil it before hand)
1/2 tsp. Oregano
Dash black pepper
*1 can tomatoes drained (20 oz.); use 1 1/2 cups of juice + water
2-6 cans of tuna or chicken
(If you want with the tuna, put in a can of whole shrimp)
1/3 cup stuffed olives sliced
Crushed potato chips
*If you can only find 28 oz. can, that's fine.

Heat soup with cheese in low heat plus milk.
Put rice in bottom of casserole dish (a 1 qt dish).
Add oregano and pepper; cut tomatoes and spread over top.
Add enough water for 2 cups liquid (juice from tomatoes), add.
Mix tuna, onion slices, olives in bowl and put over tomatoes; then
Pour soup mixture over. Top with crushed potato chips.
Bake 350 degrees 30-45 minutes. If you have enough liquid, the
Casserole will not get dry if you overbake.
Test by sticking fork into it.

Amlan's doing his best to prove that he is not living on pumpkins and hungry-man frozen meal packages.

This seems awesome, but are you sure Bruce was not trying to fatten you up for your next station in life- the portly wise proffesor!!
