It is from practically from scratch. If you want 100% from scratch then by all means make it and post it.
The soups are canned and the pasta is all natural. The cheese is bagged but you can use fresh if you prefer.
1 can is about 14.5oz
It's creamed soup, you can use organic if you want. It is my recipe and my recipe requires canned cream of soups.
Well since I live in America it is an American dish.
Can you remake this recipe from scratch, and change the measurements to grams instead of cans? It would make a more consistent product and much
easier for people to get the same result, especially in places where you cannot buy the premade processed ingredients.
I'm sorry but it is practically from scratch. I'm sorry it isn't fully from scratch and to your standards.
All the veggies are fresh and if you really feel like it you can make french fried onions from scratch but i have a 3 mth old and that isn't
happening any time soon. If you want to make your own pasta go ahead. I make my own pasta a lot but I don't have the machine or attachment to make
rotini pasta so I use Barilla because it is all natural pasta and not enriched. It is also a veggie pasta with spinach and zucchini and it adds more
flavor instead of the egg noodles which is what I usually use and what is traditionally used in tuna casserole. As for the cheese, get organic or use
any other cheese you want and prefer, it doesn't have to be cheddar cheese. I literally have a cheese bin in my fridge. which people tease me about,
with about 20 different fresh and pre-shredded cheeses. Believe me if I could make cheese I'd be all over it because cheese is expensive! I
No offense but I can' sit here and make all my recipes the way everyone would like them, then it wouldn't be MY recipe.
I post recipes on here a
lot and if you look at my profile you will see that. I make a lot of things from scratch and I make a lot of things that required pr-emade ingredients
as well as from scratch ingredients .
Not everyone can cook from scratch nor can they afford it. Sometimes the pr-emade quick and easy way is the way to go for some.. I always tell people
they can always alter it to how they would like it and make it their own. I welcome peoples ideas of what they did to it or how they made it. It gives
me ideas for later when I make it another time. I post mine to share with others and if you want it a different way then change it how you want it.
Here is a substitute you can make instead of using canned soups:
Cream of soup substitute
I have never made it because honestly I find the canned ones to be a heck of a lot easier. I am all for 100% from scratch but sometimes it't just not
convenient or ideal. If you have the time to make it go for it. You can always add to the soup to make it like the creamed mushroom or celery by
adding those ingredients and then putting it thru a food processor.
I honestly don't have time to convert measurements with a baby and to be honest in all the years I've posted recipes you are the first person to
have a problem with it.. You can very easily go to google and input the amount yourself to get the correct amount. The only thing I do post is the
temperature in C and F. There are people from all over the world on here and I'm not the only one who posts recipes on the regular. When someone
posts a recipe with measurements that are not what I'm use to I go to google. I follow an Italian chef on FB and everything is in Italian. I can't
ask them to change it just for me, that wouldn't be nice and they'd probably laugh at me.
Hope this answers your requests.
