Tuna Noodle & Pea Hotdish

"I was suprised to see my tuna noodle casserole recipe is somewhat different from the others on zaar. So here it is--absolutely nothing fancy about it. Just simple, comfort food at its most 1950ish."

  1. Very very good! We both loved it. I think next time though I'll cut back on the bread crumbs, maybe down to half. Very easy to make and will be adding this to my Favorites Cookbook. Thanks for posting! Tagged for Potluck Tag Game.
  2. Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ This recipe really brought back memories, 'cause my mom was big on tuna & peas & casseroles! I did tweek it a little in that I used one can of cream of vegetable soup & one can of cream of chicken soup! Then I cut back on the cheese to about 3/4 cup ~ The result was a great tasting tuna dish, well worth making again! Thanks for posting this one!
  3. I liked this. I've made tuna casserole in the past using a box of mac and cheese but I liked this just as much, maybe better. It's the kind of quick to through together and easy comfort food that is nice after working long hours. We will be eating this again in our house.
  4. I have made a lot of tuna casseroles and it has always been something that has been well accepted. Adding cheese to it was a new turn for me and why I decided to try this one, Unfortunately neither the DH or myself cared much for the cheese with tuna and mushroom soup base. I don't really think it's a fault of the recipe at all, just our tastes, also, I think it could have used some onion. I'm glad that we tried it but I won't be adding cheese to a Tuna Noodle casserole again
  5. the perfect family recipe, my 6 year old actually did most of the preparation and most of the eating too!
