READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Caolyn2

This is one of my family's favorite "comfort foods". I took it to a sick friend once who also "hates tuna casseroles". He thought it was chicken. :) Try it, I think you'll want it as a keeper!

FABULOUS!!! My family absolutely loved this recipe. I generally am not a fan of Tuna Noodle Casserole, but the cream cheese and sour cream in this recipe made it stand out from all the others I tried. I followed the recipe except that I used Italian seasoning in place of the parsley flakes & used Panko breadcrumbs for the topping. I came home from work and put this together in just about 15 mins, had a glass of wine, steamed some veggies and it was a fantastic weeknight meal. We also enjoyed the leftovers the next day for lunch. This has gone into my 5-star favorites file. Thanks for sharing!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package fine egg noodles, cooked and drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (6 ounce) can albacore tuna, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 12 teaspoon onion salt
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • milk
  • breadcrumbs, for top


  1. Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mushroom soup, onion salt and parsley flakes.
  2. Carefully stir in tuna and noodles.
  3. You may need to thin with a little milk. During the baking the noodles tend to soak up the moisture and can be dry.
  4. Spoon into a casserole dish, top with bread crumbs.
  5. Bake uncovered 350F for 30-35 minutes until heated through.
  6. I serve it with a crisp green salad and hot dinner rolls.
  7. ENJOY!
