My daughters enjoy tuna noodle casserole, but not the calories, so here is a version that is more diet friendly.

Used maybe 1/4 c mayo, and mixed the parmesan and bread crumbs with 2-3 T of butter to help with browning. This was a great combination and it worked without needing extra tweaks. Came out of the oven and looked like the pictures from cookbooks. Has the taste of a company meal. Used regular-fat items versus low fat, and the taste was great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté onions, celery and peppers until onions are transparent.
  2. Add all of the ingredients (except the noodles and parmesan) and heat over medium until the cheddar melts.
  3. Add the noodles, mix well, and turn into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese and an equal amount of dried bread crumbs, if you would like. Bake at 425 F for 20 minutes.
