Nif's Nothing Fancy Tuna Casserole

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. Drain pasta, return to pot and add all other ingredients. Mix well and pour into casserole dish. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
  3. 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. Made for Went to the Market Tag.
