Grandma's Tuna Noodle Casserole

Now this is my late Grandmother's recipe and, lucky for you all I WILL be posting it because I believe that everyone should enjoy it just as much as I do. Okay if you have a recipe for Tuna Noodle Casserole, go get it and throw it in the trash--now. This is one of those meals that you make on a cold night and it makes you feel all warm and snuggly inside. Obviously you can make your own modifications to your own personal taste but this is how I make it, and it is FANTASTIC!

1/4 cup chopped onion
2 TBSP melted butter (sometimes I use a little more if I'm in the mood)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup of milk (you can also sub for soy milk)
2/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/8 TSP dry mustard
1 can of tuna(or chicken) DRAINED
2 cups of egg noodles cooked - you can really use any noodles you like, but these are the best!
1 can of peas DRAINED
2 cups of Lay's Potato chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook noodles until al dente. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, once the butter is melted, add the onions. Cook until onions are brown and tender. Next, add the cream of mushroom soup, milk, cheese, and mustard. Heat until the cheese melts. Blend in peas, tuna, and cooked noodles. Dump into a casserole dish and crumble potato chips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Voila!!!
