Weeknight dinner doesn’t get much easier than throwing together an easy tuna noodle casserole. This quick and classic recipe is so tasty and easy to customize.
Having dinner together as a family is a big deal to me. We only get a few years together and they seem to be going faster each year.
Like most parents, I don’t have tons of time to cook dinner, but I do what I can.
Classic meals from my childhood like my mom’s classic lasagna with cottage cheese often make an appearance on my own dinner table, as is the case with this yummy tuna noodle casserole.
Tuna Casserole Ingredients
The thing I love about tuna noodle casserole is how versatile it is. This is a really simple recipe but you could add cheese, different vegetables or even use chicken instead of tuna.
This would be soooo good with rotisserie chicken! So I’m just saying. Feel free to get creative.
For this one, I used two kinds of mushroom soup, tuna, noodles, milk, peas, butter and breadcrumbs.
How to Make Tuna Noodle Casserole
This really couldn’t be easier. You’ll want to cook the noodles first and preheat the oven.
Then, mix everything together except the butter and breadcrumbs.
Throw it in a casserole dish and you’re almost there!
After it bakes for about 20 minutes, sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture on top and brown it in the oven for a few more minutes.
Can You Freeze Tuna Casserole?
Yes! This is a great meal to make ahead or freeze for later.
I like to make extra and freeze it for another day or use the leftovers for weekday lunches.
