Another simple yet satisfying home meal that you can make in no time. A huge hit with kids, big and small. Also very easy on the bank account! If you don't have 2 cans of tuna, just use one. Quarter your canned whole mushrooms if that's what you have. Use a shaped pasta like macaroni, rotini, penne, something to hold the sauce. Add any veggies, seasonings, etc. that you think your family might like. Also freezes very well. Enjoy!
- 1 lb dry pasta, shaped (I use Catelli Smart but you can use whole wheat or whatever you prefer)
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna in water (flaked or chunk, drained)
- 1 (10 ounce) can reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup, condensed
- 1 (10 ounce) can mushrooms, sliced, drained
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, grated
- Boil pasta in salted water, as directed. While pasta is cooking, spray a 2 quart casserole with nonstick spray; open cans of tuna, soup and mushrooms.
- Drain pasta, return to pot and add all other ingredients. Mix well and pour into casserole dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
- Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. You just need the casserole to heat through. Remove from oven when cheese has completely melted and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
I made this tuna casserole for DH and my son. I used fresh mushrooms that I fried in a pan with a little bit of butter. I used gruyere cheese on top. DH liked it and said 4 stars. Thanks Nif :) Made for Market tag game
Oh boy! Talk about overeating. I sure did on this one. It was wonderful. I only used 1 can of tuna and left out the salt. I also added frozen peas. Will be making this one again!! Made for PAC Spring 2011.
Yummy! I was really in the mood for some good old comfort food and this hit the spot! I used Catelli Smart since you mentioned it - I had never tried it before. And I sauteed some fresh mushrooms, used a Mexican cheese blend and served with peas - gotta have peas with tuna casserole, lol. I totally over ate! Thanks Nif for a nice simple keeper.
