Creamette 100th Anniversary Giveaway and Contest
Creamette Pasta is celebrating their 100th Anniversary. In celebration, Creamette Pasta is inviting families in the Midwest region to share their favorite comfort-food recipe made with Creamette Pasta, along with an original essay of 100 words (or less) describing their family mealtime memory about the recipe. In June, 10 semi-finalists will be chosen to participate in a nationwide online vote– and you could win $10,000! The contest runs until May 30th and you can find all the details and submit your entries here.
To celebrate Creamette Pasta’s 100th Anniversary, I made one of my favorite comfort-food recipes to share… tuna noodle casserole. I used Creamette Pasta’s Tuna Noodle Casserole with Potato Chip Topping and adapted it for my family’s tastes… which means, I added cheese or no one would have eaten it. The recipe below is the actual recipe, but then I mixed in 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese before baking it.
- 1/2 package (16 oz) Medium Egg Noodles, uncooked
- 1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of mushroom soup
- 1 can (5 oz) evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 can (5 oz) tuna, drained and flaked
- 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed and drained
- 1 can (4 oz) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup potato chips, crushed
- Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain.
- In medium bowl, blend soup, evaporated milk, sour cream, tuna, peas, mushrooms and onion.
- Add noodles; mix well.
- Pour into greased 2-quart casserole.
- Top with potato chips.
- Bake, uncovered, in a 350°F oven until hot and bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes.

Some people think this is gross but my brother and I loved this growing up and still do today. There are never any leftovers when I make this for my family. This recipe comes out of the Depression era. My great-grandmother had so many mouths to feed and needed something cheap and easy. This is super cheap and couldn’t get any easier. Thanks Granny!
1lb ground hamburger
1 package of Creamette elbow macaroni
1/4 tsp of oil – I prefer to use Canola
Brown the hamburger in a skillet. Boil the package of macaroni. When macaroni and hamburger are done, combine the two in the skillet. Add in the oil. Fry the mixture on med heat until the desired crispyness is achieved. Season to taste.
My husband originally didn’t like this because it is a little plain. He added in vegetables & cheese.
My favorite to eat with it is shrimp, cucumbers and italian dressing—pasta salad
My favorite comfort food is Chicken Noodle Soup. I make a big pot easy. I use Creamette noodles, 1 can of chicken breast, 2 large containers of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of frozen mixed vegetables, 1 cups water and season with parsley, pepper, salt and celery salt
I love to make my real homemade mac n’ cheese with Creamette elbows
Good homemade mac and cheese with a crusty top! Yum.
Creamette pasta salad is my favorite! I make a pasta salad with chicken, pepperoni. peppers, mozzarella cheese, red wine vinegar and olive oil! Delish!
My favorite comfort food is a simple eggplant parmesan lasagna!
I have never tried Creamette pasta but I look forward to using it to make spaghetti
Heavy Cream, Garlic, Butter and Parmesan make a wonderful pasta meal!!
My favorite using Cremettes is good ol Macaroni and cheese w/lots of cheese!
