Although this is a low fat recipe, it is absolutely scrumptious and a real kid pleaser! Leftovers taste great microwaved. Can be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook the macaroni until just tender and drain.
  3. Combine cooked macaroni, tuna, celery, onion and bell pepper in a large bowl.

  7. Pour the saucepan contents over the macaroni mixture in the bowl and mix it up well to combine.
  8. Pour the whole thing into a medium sized casserole dish (about 2 quart) that has been sprayed with no-stick spray.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes.

Delicious, could not stop eating it! My new go to recipe for tuna casserole!

GREAT RECIPE! I am always looking for a new healthier version of tuna casserole and this was it. I used whole wheat elbow noodles, fat free cream of mushroom soup, low fat cheddar cheese, peas and I added less mayo. Next time I am going to try with using all fat free ingredients and see how that is. I liked the creamy texture and the addition of celery. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is AWESOME! I have made it twice in the last two weeks! I made it the first time with cream of chicken soup and no celery and it was still quite good. The second time I followed the recipe exactly and it was wonderful! Thanks!
