These recipes are from my vintage recipe collection. They are quick, easy, and offer comfort to the family on a tight budget. Make your family this comfort food meal featuring Virginia's Macaroni Tuna Casserole, which has pasta, dairy, soup, tuna, and vegetables all in the one dish. For a different salad option make this Cabbage Salad with Cooked Dressing. Both of these recipes are from my childhood, growing up in Southern Indiana. We may not have been rich but we were always rich with lots of good food.
