A classic dinner recipe that the entire family will love. Even my kids asked for seconds of this Tuna Casserole. It’s made with egg noodles and then topped with cheese before baking.
Tuna casserole is a classic. Growing up we ate tuna a lot and I always loved it. Even as someone who didn’t always like fish I loved tuna. This Tuna Casserole is the same recipe that I grew up on and know my kids love it.
For this dinner recipe, I used canned tuna and egg noodles. A creamy base made from cream of chicken soup and mayonnaise. I seasoned it all then topped it with cheese before popping it in the oven.
Something that I personally love about this recipe is how easy it is to make. I usually have these ingredients in my pantry on any given time and it can all be put together in less than an hour.
Cheesy Tuna Casserole Ingredients:
- Egg noodles
- Cream of chicken soup
How to make Tuna Casserole:
Step one: I always start with prepping my casserole dish with some non-stick cooking spray and reheating my oven. For this recipe, I used a 9×13 casserole dish.
Step two: Next go ahead and cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain and place in your prepared casserole dish. Drain your tuna and place it in your dish with noodles and mix.
Step three: In a separate bowl prepare your creamy base for the casserole. Mix together cream of chicken soup, mayonnaise, and seasonings. Once those are well combined with the tuna and noodles and mix until all noodles are coated. Last top with shredded cheese.
Step four: Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until cheese is melted and your casserole is warm throughout.
