Put the dried ingredients (peas, mushrooms, peppers, onions and celery powder) into a pot with 1 cup of water and allow to rehydrate for at least 30 minutes. Place dried tuna and cream of mushroom soup in a bowl. Mix the powdered milk with 1 cup water, and pour over the tuna mixture. Rehydrate for at least 30 minutes. Bring the pot with the vegetables to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Add the tuna mixture and bring to a boil once again. Simmer for another 15 minutes. While the sauce is cooking, cook the egg noodles until tender. Drain, and add tuna / vegetable mixture and the parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.


A good recipe to use if you're base camping, as it's a bit involved. It's based on a Tuna a la King recipe from Mary Bell's Complete Dehydrator Cookbook.
