    JeanieK's Note:

    This has the comfort of a tuna noodle casserole, but modernized with Sushi Yellowfin or Ahi Tuna. While the noodle casserole is baking, you can be searing the tuna. I made this recipe up one night and it was a big hit. I get asked to make it often. I called it "Not Yo Mama's" because it starts out like your mom's, but takes a 'fusion turn' toward 'special.'

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick spray. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add egg noodles, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain. Rinse briefly.
    2. 2
      Melt 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium low heat. Stir in onion, celery, garlic, and red pepper. Cook 5 minutes, or until tender. Increase heat to medium high and add sliced mushrooms. Continue to cook and stir 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
    3. 3
      Melt 5 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan, and whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in milk and continue cooking 5 minutes until sauce is smooth and slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in peas, mushroom mixture and cooked noodles. Transfer to the baking dish.
    4. 4
      Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a small bowl and mix with bread crumbs. Sprinkle on top of noodle mixture.
    5. 5
      Bake 25 minutes in preheated oven until bubbly and lightly browned.
    6. 6
      While casserole is baking, rinse tuna and roll in black and white sesame seed mixture on all sides. Sear tuna in olive oil one minute on each of the six sides (longer if you don't like your tuna rare). Remove from pan and slice thinly.
    7. 7
      When casserole is finished, place tuna slices on top and serve. Option: Keep tuna separate until ready to serve. Place serving on individual plates. Garnish with dill or lettuce and place several slices of tuna on top or on the side with the garnish.
