Tuna Tortellini Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by WorkingMom2three

I stole this idea from one of those dinner assembly place menus. The addition of tortellini as the "noodles" in tuna noodle casserole almost makes it decadent. It is still just a basic tuna noodle casserole recipe - not really meant to be real spicy or or exciting :-) Just comfort food . . .

I have another recipe for hashbrowns that is similar in idea. I did not add the milk to this and essentially make a cheese sauce in the oven. I left the soup at full strength and simply sprinkled the cheese on top of the casserole with some bread crumbs. The only addition I made was to add garlic. It's a good recipe though!

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with 4 quarts water and put on high heat to boil.
  2. Chop onion and celery and saute in a little oil or spray. (Note: Feel free to add mushrooms or peppers, I can barely get away with celery with my family's tastes).
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Add tortellini to water and cook per package directions - you can undercook a little.
  5. In a 2 quart casserole, mix tuna, soup, and milk.
  6. Add celery and onion mixture to casserole.
  7. Drain tortellini and add to casserole. Add cheese and fold in with tuna mixture.
  8. Sprinkle with crushed potato chips, bread crumbs, etc., if you desire.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
