    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 ounces elbow macaroni (can also use 1/2 a package of spaghetti noodles broken into thirds)
    • 1/2 cup chopped celery (optional but nice)
    • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of celery soup
    • 1/2 cup whole milk
    • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1 cup shredded cheese (plus a handful more to sprinkle on top if you want)
    • 10 ounces tuna, well drained and squeezed dry (two five ounce cans of tuna)
    • 4 tablespoons of minced jarred roasted red peppers or 4 tablespoons of jarred pimientos


    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (or 1 cup of panko crumbs are REALLY nice if you have them on hand)
    • 4 tablespoons margarine
    • 1 teaspoon paprika


    1. 1
      Cook and drain macaroni. If using the optional chopped celery, boil it with the pasta.
    2. 2
      In a bowl blend together the soup, milk, mayo, and dry mustard.
    3. 3
      Stir in cheese, tuna, and pimiento.
    4. 4
      Gently fold in macaroni/spaghetti and transfer into a 2 quart 8X8 inch casserole dish.
    5. 5
      Combine crumbs, butter, and paprika and sprinkle evenly on top.
    6. 6
      Bake uncovered at 350 for 30-35 minutes or so. When the crumbs are a pretty color and the juices are bubbling around the edges your casserole is done.

      I love this casserole! I second Kittycatmom on using panko bread crumbs on top... or you can go super PWT like I did, and top it with Ruffles potato chips! Super good and very comforting. I didn't have anything oily either, that would be the cheese not the recipe! Thanks Potsie!

      Loved this! I didn't have cream of celery so used cream of onion and opted to add chopped celery. Really delicious. Nothing "oily or starchy" here! I recommend the panko bread crumbs, that extra crunch brings the dish over the top! Thanks Potsie! I will make this again!
