My 70s Childhood Tuna Casserole : >

Recipe by Kozmic Blues
READY IN: 30mins


  • 2
    (7 1/2 ounce) boxes macaroni and cheese mix
  • 12
    cup butter (not spread or tub product) or 1/2 cup margarine (not spread or tub product)
  • 12
    cup milk
  • 2
    (6 ounce) cans tuna in water, drained
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can peas, drained
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can corn, drained
  • 34
    cup cheddar cheese, divided
  • breadcrumbs, for topping


  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Cook macaroni and cheese according to package directions (I usually boil noodles for 6 minutes because casserole will bake a bit more in oven).
  • I also add a little more milk to the mac and cheese so there is enough cheesy sauce to coat everything.
  • After thoroughly mixing noodles with the cheese, add peas corn.
  • Break the tuna up a bit with a fork so there aren't too many huge chunks and add it as well.
  • Toss in half of the shredded cheese and mix well.
  • Spoon into a large baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs to taste.
  • Heat in oven for about 20-25 minutes.
