2 Cups Baked and Flaked White Fish
(Crappie or Tilapia Fillets, or your choice)
1 16oz. Bag Extra Wide Egg Noodles
2 Tsp. Salt
½ Cup Diced Sweet Onions
1 Cup Frozen Peas (thawed)
1½ Cups Mushrooms (quartered)
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil (divided)
2 Tbsp. Butter
3 Cups Shredded Mexican Style Blend Cheese
2 Cans Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
¼ Cup Half and Half
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Cups Crushed Ritz Crackers
1 Stick Butter (melted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Baste both sides of each white fish fillet lightly with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Then bake them in the oven on a baking sheet uncovered at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until they flake apart with a fork. Remove from the oven and place the fish fillets in a bowl. Flake each fillet apart using a fork, then set aside.
Bring a large pot filled ¾ full of water to a boil on medium heat. Add egg noodles and 2 tsp. of salt and boil (stirring occasionally) until almost done, or al dente (about 2 to 3 minutes less than package suggested cooking time). Then drain and set aside.
In a skillet on medium heat, add 1 tbsp. olive oil and 2 tbsp. butter. Once the butter has melted, add mushrooms and saute until tender. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, add the flaked fish fillets, onions, peas, mushrooms, and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Stir in the cream of mushroom soup and half and half. Then fold the egg noodles in a little at a time until coated with the mixture.
Pour mixture into a 9 x 13 casserole dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with the remaining 2 cups of shredded cheese. In a small bowl, mix together the crushed Ritz crackers and 1 stick of melted butter and spread evenly on top of the casserole.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and continue baking for 20 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly and the Ritz cracker topping is golden brown.
