Oh Joyful Tuna Noodle Bake

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 40 mins

My sister-in-law gave me this recipe when I first got married, I used it a lot back then. Now my toddler son enjoys this. To add some veggies, I add 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots to the mix. To eliminate the sodium content, I have in the past reduced the amount of salt or eliminated the Worcestershire sauce altogether.

This was easy to prepare, but my family did not care for it. Too much mayonaise taste and it was salty for us. I am going to keep searching, hopefully finding the recipe my Mom used to prepare in the 50's. That was really good!

this recipe is perfect comfort food. I loved the flavor the Worcestershire sauce left. I added buttered Ritz crumbs on top for some extra crunch!!! Creamy, cheesy, and dreamy. Thanks for sharing Naner!!

The only major problem with this recipe is the salt content. The addition of 1/2 tsp. table salt after 2 tsp. of seasoned salt and 1 tsp. of W. Sauce and the slightly salty nature of the tuna is over the top. I would not only cut out the table salt completely but hold back on some of the seasoned salt. The rest of the recipe is fine. A wonderful rendition of a budget conscious staple.
