Creamy and Delicious Tuna Noodle Casserole

This is a tuna noodle casserole recipe that is a favorite for my family. I just kind of threw it all together one evening and we loved the combination. It is really creamy and makes a nice sized batch. This goes great with garlic cheddar biscuits or buttered bread. Great comfort food!

Ready In:
45mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 lb rotini pasta
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans tuna, drained
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can peas and carrots, drained (I prefer DelMonte because they are diced)
  • 1 (8 ounce) bag shredded cheddar cheese
  • mustard, to taste

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook rotini according to package directions while oven is preheating.
  • While the rotini is cooking, whisk together the softened cream cheese, cream of mushroom soup, tuna, milk,, and enough mustard to color it slightly. The mustard really adds a great flavor!
  • Add the cheddar cheese and peas and carrots, reserving some cheddar for the top if you prefer.
  • Mix cream mixture and rotini and place in a 13x9 inches baking dish and cook for 30 minutes.

    Yes, excellent casserole. I made it as directed, I did half the recipe and it still made plenty. Even better the next day! I used frozen peas and corn, (oops, just saw the recipe called for carrots! well, I'm afraid I used corn, but it was great ....) and English mustard powder.<br/>Definitely, great comfort food, thanks Auvan!

    This is the BEST tuna casserole I have ever had. I .used the mustard and I think you are really cheating yourself if you omit it. I only used a little the first time but I am making it again today and will use a little more. Scrumptious!

    Ahhh, this is comfort food at its best. I made it exactly as posted and wouldn't change a thing. Never had tuna casserole with mustard in it and we really liked it this way. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Auvan.

    This was great. Peas AND carrots are a MUST for tuna noodle! I think the cream cheese made it very rich. I did use wide egg noodles, instead of the rotini, didn't use the mustard, and added in a small sauteed onion and clove of garlic.... and it was just like mom's (maybe even a little better- but don't tell) Thanks for sharing.
