This is an adaptation of "Kittencal's Easy Tuna or Chicken Noodle Casserole". I did not have some of Kittencal's ingredients, so I improvised & came up with a deliciously different tuna casserole recipe! The roasted red peppers add a great flavor and color to this dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb medium egg noodles, cooked and drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 18 cup green onion, chopped (green part only)
  • 12 cup roasted red pepper, chopped (jar)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 14 teaspoon paprika (use a good Hungarian paprika if you want more kick)
  • 18 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated (divided)
  • 34 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated (you can substitute American or Provolone)
  • 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, drained well
