Tuna Noodle Casserole

If there were a poster child for comfort food, I'm pretty sure Tuna Noodle Casserole would be in the running to be included in that list. Whose mama and grandma didn't make this stuff? It's great because it uses mostly pantry staples. It's economical, easy to make, and tastes great! I grew up eating the stuff with the cream of mushroom soup in it. You can definitely omit the canned soup and make your own. You can find a recipe for your own cream of whatever soup HERE.

I like to serve it with a side salad, fruit and usually some type of bread.







Tuna Noodle Casserole
Slightly adapted from Campbell's Kitchen
Yield: 8 servings

1 tbsp. butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 cans (10¾ oz. each) cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 cup milk
1½ cup frozen peas, thawed and drained
4 cans (5 oz. each) tuna, drained
4 cups (about ½ of a 12 oz. pkg) medium egg noodles, cooked and drained
1-1½ cup Cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 3 qt. casserole with cooking spray and set aside.

In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until onion is soft.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the soup, milk, peas, tuna and noodles. When the onions are soft, add them to the mixture. Mix well.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture is heated through and the cheese is melted.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Pinned :-) Sounds delicious! We usually make a tuna dish using a pre-mixed mushroom powder/pasta box ... lol..that's on our very lazy days. I like the peas in there.

  2. Almost my recipe but I use a can of cream of onion soup in place of the chopped onion. Just add a bit more noodles.

  3. My mum used to make something similar but used tinned chicken and cream of chicken soup since none of us like tuna. Thanks for sharing on Tout It Tuesday! Hope to see you next week.

  4. My mom made this often during Lent. One of my dad's favorites. I don't remember her adding peas. Gosh, that seems like so long ago. Thank you for linking up, Jamie!

  7. My husband thinks I'm strange, but I LOVE tuna noodle casserole! My mom always made it very similar to your recipe, but she didn't use cheese and never baked it. I will be trying this soon--yummy! :-)
