Looking for a delicious and easy tuna noodle casserole recipe, look no further. This is a simple recipe full of flavor and not a lot of fuss and only a few ingredients that you probably have on hand.
I have been trying to make one that is similar to my mother-in-laws and failed miserably for years until finally, I did it.
We have a newborn so making dinner has to be something quick and easy I can throw together and pop in the oven and that is how this recipe was born.
Your whole family is going to love the flavor and you are going to enjoy how simple it is to make so that you can get on with your evening with no fuss.
Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole
For this easy recipe, you will need a couple of ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboard.
You will need noodles of any kind, I used organic macaroni noodles but any kind will do. Fill a pot of water and boil them to al dente then drain the water.
All the other ingredients you will mix right in the same pan so make sure that it is big enough.
I used cream of chicken soup in my recipe but you can use homemade or a different flavor if you don’t like chicken.
This recipe only requires two cans of tuna that are 5oz cans. You could use a big one but I think it will be to much tuna for this recipe.
When mixing the ingredients I added the salt, pepper and garlic powder and stirred it into the noodles first then I added in the mayo and mixed it in till it was moist (you don’t want to much mayo) and then I added in the soup.
I think it turned out better than any of my other tuna noodle casseroles because I mixed them all in really good after adding each ingredient but I could be wrong.
Preheat your oven to 375 while you are preparing the noodles so that it is ready to go when you are done.
- Pinch of Salt
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- Pinch of Garlic
- 1 Cup of Mayo
- 3/4 Cup of Milk
- 1 10.75 oz Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1 Cup of Noodles
- 2 5oz Cans of Tuna in water drained
- 1 cup of Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Can of Peas
Preheat your oven to 375 and boil your noodles to al dente then add in your salt, pepper, and garlic and mix.
Add In your mayo and mix through till moist, put in the soup and mix again then add the milk.
Drain the tuna and put it in along with the peas and mix it all really good and put it into your casserole dish. I used a 9×13 dish and sprayed it with nonstick spray so it’s easier to clean later.
Make sure it is smooth and even and top it with the cheese, put it in the oven for 35 minutes or until the top is a little crispy.
Serve and enjoy with a side salad and some bread.
Final Thoughts On Making Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole
My family loved this recipe so much that they came back for seconds, the best part of it is that it reheats well and you don’t have soggy chips on the top of it.
My mother inlaw always put potato chips on top, reheating it made the chips really mushy which was not to my family’s liking.
The cheese adds a nice crunch to the casserole and adds to the flavor making it all blend together really well.
If you are looking for freezer meals for postpartum this one is great, you can make it ahead of time and freeze it then later take it out let it thaw and put it in the oven at 375 for 40 minutes.
