Light Tuna Noodle Casserole

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

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.

Very good! I used regular cream of mushroom so it wasn't as fat free but I find the fat free ones are sweeter. The parmesan was a nice touch

This is one of those great comfort food recipes (but with a nice lighter touch!). It is creamy and flavorful. My husband loves this version and asks for it often. It is a good meal to prepare in the morning, refrigerate and then bake in the evening for a quick and tasty dinner when I'm on the run.

This is a simple and delicious recipe. The flavors blend well together and is seasoned perfectly. I used bottled roasted red peppers. Be sure you have celery, because no tuna casserole is complete w/out celery ... sadly, I used all mine in another recipe didn't realize just how much of a difference it makes (well, at least for me) :( We enjoyed it just the same. Thanks Likkel. :)
