Delicious Tuna Casserole, Recipe rewind, because some things are too good to miss!

Recipe rewind, because in the beginning there is a blogger who has no readers. She still posts great food in hopes that the readers will can also view it here in the archives.

How does one describe a tuna noodle casserole without losing the listener? There is a certain automatic sense of dread when someone says tuna 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. Like most recipes, you make it your own.

Delicious Tuna Casserole
350 degrees

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
1/4 c Parmesan cheese

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

Saute the garlic in the olive oil until soften 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.

Serves 3 -4

  1. Recipe rewind - what a great idea!

  2. Great idea and I just love dishes like this~

  3. Now that one is similar to my mom's and the memories are sweet. There was no panko crumbs back then though. Thanks for republishing this one.

  4. This sounds so much better than the tuna dish you featured yesterday! I actually love tuna casserole. It is so old fashioned and frugal. I like the addition of the dill weed; I'll have to try that next time.

  5. I happen to love tuna noodle casserole. It was one of my favourite meals growing up. This sounds even better than my Mom's (and I loved my Mom's)!

  6. I'm just one of those people who think they don't like tuna casserole...I'm not even sure if I have ever tried it.

  7. Never been a fan of the tuna casserole. Maybe I'll try this one to turn it around. Thx

  8. I really like tuna casserole. And it's one those things that are better the next day.
