Tuna Noodle Casserole Recipe

 Tuna noodle casserole is a comforting, easy-to-make dish that combines tender noodles, flavorful tuna, and a creamy sauce, all topped with a crispy breadcrumb crust.


2 cups egg noodles 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup 1 cup frozen peas 1 (12 ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked 1 cup breadcrumbs

Step 1

Preheat and Prepare: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 2-quart casserole dish to prevent sticking. This ensures the casserole can be easily served.

Step 2

Cook Noodles: Boil egg noodles in salted water until tender, about 7-9 minutes, then drain and set aside. Cooking the noodles al dente is crucial so they don't become mushy in the casserole.

Step 3

Mix Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine cooked noodles, canned tuna, condensed cream of mushroom soup, and frozen peas. Ensure everything is well-mixed for an even distribution of flavors and textures.

Step 4

Assemble Casserole: Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top for a crunchy layer that will contrast with the creamy interior.

Step 5

Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown and the casserole is bubbly. Allow it to cool slightly before serving to let the flavors meld together.
