Tuna and noodles, a delicious casserole!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Some recipes are so good, sharing only once seems a bit selfish! That is the case with this Tuna and Noodles casserole. It is really good, and while I know all food bloggers say their food is delicious, mine really is....or so I have been told! I hope you give this great casserole a try!

Tuna and Noodles Casserole, too good to miss!
Tuna and Noodles Casserole, too good to pass up!
How does one describe a tuna casserole without losing the listener? There is a certain automatic sense of dread when someone says tuna noodle casserole, even with me, and I know about this one.

And this one is delicious.

I originally found the recipe in Sunset magazine, years and years ago. And like most recipes, you make it your own. This casserole, however, has style, it is flavored with a couple of extra ingredients that are not unusual, but make this casserole one that is good enough for dinner guests!

I have made it with plain macaroni and with homemade noodles, and both ways are wonderful. The noodles, by the way, are fun to make and a great rainy day project...

Tuna and Noodles Casserole
adapted from a recipe originally found in Sunset Magazine
350-degree oven

1 recipe Puffy Cheese Noodles (remember you can make these ahead and store in the freezer)  
OR 2 c elbow macaroni cooked.
1 c frozen peas
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 can milk
1 T olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
2 t dill weed, crumbled
2 T sherry wine
1 or 2 cans of albacore, drained and broken apart not flaked
1/4 c panko or dry bread crumbs

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and boil uncovered 9 - 10 minutes. Add peas and cook an additional minute. Drain well, and set aside.

Saute the garlic in the olive oil until softened but not brown. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer 3 - 4 minutes. Combine the noodles and sauce in a small casserole dish.

Stir together the panko and cheese. Sprinkle evenly over the top. Bake 15 minutes.

  1. We love tuna noodle casserole and yours looks delicious. I use egg noodles in mine, but you challenge me to make my own noodles. . .

    1. I too love homemade egg noodles, the original recipe called for macaroni. And I must admit, I have made it with macaroni and it is good, but so much better with homemade egg noodles. Let me know how it turns out, thanks for stopping by!
