30 Min

Our Good Ol' Tuna Noodle Casserole is a comforting classic that first become popular in the 1950s. Our version has the same mouthwatering flavors, but we've added a few shortcuts, so that you have more time to spend with the family. This tuna noodle casserole has a nostalgic feel, and you might just find all those childhood memories coming to join you at the table.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) package wide egg noodles
  • 2 (10-3/4-ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) can solid tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 (13-ounce) package frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup French-fried onions

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare noodles according to package directions; drain.
  3. In a large bowl, combine soup and milk; mix well. Add noodles, tuna, Swiss cheese, peas, butter, salt, and pepper. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish then top evenly with French-fried onions.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until bubbly and heated through. Serve immediately.

Test Kitchen Tip

  • When it comes to the tuna, we think this is best with white solid tuna packed in water. It seems to give it the freshest taste. Yes, it’s a bit more expensive, so if you prefer, chunked in oil will work. The choice is yours.
