Creamy Tuna Casserole

Tuna casserole is a bit of a North American classic where every family has their own favourite take on it! Not my family though, my mom hasn’t made a tuna casserole in her life, giving to the fact that my parents don’t even eat tuna (she tried to torture us with salmon loaf though, bleh!) so this dish was one I didn’t try until adulthood but quickly found my favourite way of making it! This recipe is an awesome, creamy, cheesy noodle version with not a pea in site! It does however have sauteed mushrooms and onions, crunchy celery and corn.

  1. Looks delicious – love your photos!

  2. I have to admit, you are bringing me back to my childhood. I love tuna casserole. My family does not but maybe, just maybe, I can sneak this recipe by them.

  3. I will have to try making this for the boys. I would leave out the mushrooms, but other then that it looks delicious!

  4. Holy yum…this looks delicious!

  5. YUM!! That looks so delicious!! I think I need to make a GF version! DH over dosed on burnt tuna casserole when he was younger so we tries to avoid it!

  6. I bookmarked this one even before I finished reading it! It looks SO yummy! I’m sure my family would love this one and it looks better than the tuna casserole recipe I have now. I love salmon but…salmon loave..blah! I’m with you on that 🙂

  7. What do you do to the celery stalks before you add them?

  8. Debbie S. says:

    Looks delicious. I have been craving tuna lately. Thanks.

  9. I think I’d like that! Eat tuna all the time, but my hubby doesn’t like it.

  10. Jennifer Ann Wilson says:

    I think this is like the recipe my Mom used to make when I was little. I can’t wait to give it a try.

  11. I cook for 5 grown men on a ranch. So, it is “den mom” versus the boys. So, A package of noodles, to me, is a 3 pounder from Costco. When you say a package of noodles, how many ounce package is that? Kind of a dumb question. But, a legitimate one for me…as everything I buy is in bulk. Thanks.
