This is a tuna noodle casserole recipe that is a favorite for my family. I just kind of threw it all together one evening and we loved the combination. It is really creamy and makes a nice sized batch. This goes great with garlic cheddar biscuits or buttered bread. Great comfort food!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb rotini pasta
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans tuna, drained
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can peas and carrots, drained (I prefer DelMonte because they are diced)
  • 1 (8 ounce) bagshredded cheddar cheese
  • mustard, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook rotini according to package directions while oven is preheating.
  2. While the rotini is cooking, whisk together the softened cream cheese, cream of mushroom soup, tuna, milk,, and enough mustard to color it slightly. The mustard really adds a great flavor!
  3. Add the cheddar cheese and peas and carrots, reserving some cheddar for the top if you prefer.
  4. Mix cream mixture and rotini and place in a 13x9 inches baking dish and cook for 30 minutes.

Yes, excellent casserole. I made it as directed, I did half the recipe and it still made plenty. Even better the next day! I used frozen peas and corn, (oops, just saw the recipe called for carrots! well, I'm afraid I used corn, but it was great ....) and English mustard powder.
Definitely, great comfort food, thanks Auvan!

This is the BEST tuna casserole I have ever had. I .used the mustard and I think you are really cheating yourself if you omit it. I only used a little the first time but I am making it again today and will use a little more. Scrumptious!
