Serve this flavorful tuna casserole with biscuits and a tossed salad for a family-pleasing everyday meal.

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces macaroni or mini penne pasta
  • 2 cans tuna, drained (about 12 to 14 ounces total)
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 can or jar (4 to 6 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • dash pepper
  • 2 cups frozen peas or peas and carrots, cooked just until tender, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°.

Lightly grease a 3-quart baking dish or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Cook the pasta in boiling water following package directions. Drain and rinse with hot water.

In a large bowl, mix the pasta with drained tuna, soups, milk, mushrooms, pepper, and drained peas. Gently stir in 1 cup of the cheese. Turn into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese. Toss bread crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle evenly over the cheese layer.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and bubbly.

delicious, Member amchisholm

We used a 13 x 9 pan and the family enjoyed this dish today, it was quick and easy. I put the frozen noodles in the strainer and gently poured the hot water and noodles over them.
