Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

For many people, Tuna Noodle Casserole is like a childhood classic. Somehow though, my family never ate this when I was growing up. We had tuna. And we had casserole…but no Tuna Noodle Casserole.

So now I am thinking I better make this. See what all the fuss is about.

There’s a thousand fancy ways to make Tuna Noodle Casserole. Adding chopped celery and onion, pimiento, chopped parsley…cheddar, sliced mushrooms, even broccoli…the possibilities are endless and mouthwatering.

Oh well. I’m going to go about this the old skool way and only the the most basic ingredients are allowed!

I hear you can make Tuna Noodle Casserole with these simple ingredients…

And a really simple recipe, so let’s check it out.

  • Tuna Noodle Casserole
    • 1 large can tuna (drained)
    • 1 can cream of chicken soup
    • 1 small can peas
    • 4 C wide egg noodles, cooked
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 3/4 C milk
    • 1 C breadcrumbs
    • Grease an 8″ square casserole dish.
    • Flake tuna into the dish.
    • Mix soup with milk and salt then pour into casserole dish.
    • Add noodles and peas and mix all together.
    • Top evenly with breadcrumbs, sealing exposed noodles
    • Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes.

This casserole was really easy to assemble. All that was required was to pre-cook pasta, measure and stir. No knives needed, even. Good deal. Get the kids involved for some harmless, skill teaching fun.

I know you are on the edge of your seat wondering how was it?? Here’s how it looked…

It tasted alright. Tuna Noodle Casserole is what I expected it to be, although I had hoped it would taste better. If I were to bake this again the things I would change would be to use the small can of tuna, instead of large and I would use herb-flavored breadcrumbs, instead of plain breadcrumbs.

Tuna Noodle Casserole is the kind of thing a mom should bring to the table once in awhile. It’s all part of growing up…coming to the table and getting this warm casserole-type-thing on your plate and that’s what’s for dinner. I am proud to be a part of that. Go Tuna Noodle Casserole!
