Found this recipe on to replace the Tuna Helper - Cheesy Pasta box dinner. It's supposed to be a take on "Campbell's "Tuna & Pasta Cheddar Melt."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups uncooked wide egg noodles
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 cup frozen sweet peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons Italian bread, crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  1. Heat broth to a boil in skillet. Add noodles and cook until just tender, stirring often. The broth will be almost gone. Do not drain.
  2. Stir in soup, milk, tuna, and cheese until incorporated.
  3. Once cheese is melted, add peas and heat through.
  4. Mix bread crumbs with butter. Sprinkle on top and heat another 5 minutes.

I was looking for something quick and easy for dinner and this fit the bill. I used a 12 ounce can of tuna and didn't add the bread crumbs and butter. I thought the sauce was a bit thin but after it sat for a bit it thicken up. I added a good bit of pepper. This was good but we found it a bit salty. I guess that was because of the chicken broth as I didn't add any salt.
