Eats: Tuna Casserole

4:09 PM


In hindsight, I should have taken a pic of a serving of this on a plate, because this straight up looks like a bowl of potato chips. Whoops. 

Tuna casserole, because Kyle found my stash of canned tuna in the pantry and had a craving. I am not really the biggest fan, but after a bit of tweaking, I ended up really liking this recipe. I feel like this is a simple enough dish, that everyone has their own version of it, so that makes it interesting enough for a blog post, correct?

6 oz tuna (drained)
8 oz noodles, I used spiral noodles. I think most people use egg, but whateves. 
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
10 3/4 oz condensed cream of mushroom soup + water
Kettle cooked potato chips
1/4 cup butter, cubed
2 cups peas
Cayenne pepper
Salt & Black pepper to taste

Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the package, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together in a casserole dish, except for the chips, adding enough seasonings to your own taste (I like putting 2 tablespoons or so of cayenne pepper, because I like spicy things). Next, crunch up the potato chips, and layer on the top. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. i've never done this with tuna, but i have tried it with chicken and it's superb.

  3. Looks like a great recipe for winter.

  4. Marking this already! I love fish, I pretty have all the ingredients, it is a must-try for me, oh thank you!

  5. This sound really nice! I just showed it to Kris and maybe we'll give it a whirl sometime soon. I wonder if you could substitute the mushroom soup for another soup... Kris isn't a big mushroom fan.

    I may have got slightly confused about the noodles... I thought you were putting actual noodles in there, like Chinese noodles haha

  6. One of the only foods I miss being a vegetarian is fish. I used to live off tuna pasta bake, it was simple, quick and delicious! You've made me want it again. ;) x

  7. I've always been frightened by the term 'tuna casserole', but this actually looks incredible. You're making me hungry!


  8. tuna casserole, yum!!! I must make this soon!


  9. I LOVE tuna casserole, I just can't help it! I have a ton of tuna at home right now too, maybe I need to whip a batch up!

  10. Tuna casserole was one of my favorites growing up. Now that I'm a vegetarian, I have somewhat perfected a veggie version made with garbanzo beans. It's not quite the same, but it brings back the good memories nonetheless!

  11. hahaha, it does look like a bowl of crisps! xx
