We call it Family-Favorite Tuna Noodle Casserole 'cause this is a dish that gets the whole family clamoring for seconds! After all, who doesn't love the classic taste of tuna paired with creamy cheesiness?

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16 ounces) package elbow macaroni
  • 1 (12 ounces) can water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  • 2 (10-3/4 ounces) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8-1/2 ounces) can peas, drained
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. Prepare macaroni according to package directions; drain, rinse, and drain again. Place in large bowl and add tuna, mushroom soup, peas, 1-1/2 cups Swiss cheese, cream, and pepper; mix well. Pour into 9- x 13-inch baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Swiss cheese over top.
     
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through.

Very unimpressed, IMO, just had very little flavor, and ingredients were too expensive(swiss cheese, whipping cream) for me not to like it. I love tuna casserole, but just did not like this at all. Picture looked so good, I really wish I would have liked it.

Yuuuuuummy! From past tuna casserole experience, I didn't have too high of expectations... but I was mistaken! I added fresh mushrooms, jalepenos, and about a quarter of an onion (finely chopped). And I'm not a big fan of tuna or peas, well done, casserole, well done. :)

My family uses milk,and Pimento(gives it a little more zing). And we put green peppers cut up in it. Great recipe.

Sounds good. Easy to make half recipe.

This is close to my recipe. I use frozen peas, they won't get mushy. Also, cream of celery or cream of onion soup works well. I also use cheddar cheese, but I am going to try swiss next time. Finally, I crush 2 cups of French's Fried Onions and put 1 cup inside the casserole and the rest for the top for some crunch!

Usually, I made this with homemade noodles. No cream. Will try this and see. Also, never made this with Swiss cheese, also going to try this.

ALLERGIC TO MUSHROOMS CAN I USE CELERY INSTEAD

I don't see why you could not use a different flavored creamed soup. I think all these recipes are a basic guideline. You can tweak them to what you like. I usually try the original version of a recipe. Then I can change it around if I want.

I am also allergic to mushrooms, I have always used cream of celery or cream of chicken soup instead. Dishes turn out great never been disappointed.

I don't have any heavy cream. Will plain old milk work?

Did it??

sounds great!!

Oh man, this sounds so good, I saved and recipe and will make it soon. God bless you, Art. We will miss you.

I have made this identical recipe for years except for the swiss cheese. I've always used cheddar. I'm curious to try it with the swiss. Sounds great!

Need to see nutrition table for recipes

Have used french's onions,,, very good.

I made this last night for my husband the "tuna noodle casserole connoisseur" and it was an approved re-make dish. The things I did differently to suit our taste was to add 2 cans of tuna, used egg noodles instead of elbow (it was what I had on hand), I added frozen peas/carrots and finished it off with sprinkling chow mein noodles on top for that extra crunch when consuming. I have heard that french's onions are good as well but I have not tried that yet. It is a dish I would make again and it went into the "keep" folder. Took another's suggestion and paried it with a side salad and cresant rolls....very good and quick weekday meal.

Oldie but goodie been making this since home ec class in the 50's I always add 1 can of milk in the old days we never added cheese on top but now we do usually sprinkle top with shredded cheese or top or with crushed crackers & a little butter

Made this for dinner. It was very good, inexpensive and easy. The only change I made was I used a can of mixed veggies instead of peas since my little one does not like. Also had to add some salt to our portions. Made side of cresant rolls and it was a meal. :)

I have been making this for ever, The only difference is that I use Kraft Velveta cheese and singles for the top, and in the last 5 min. of cooking I put crubled potatoe chips on top and finish cooking untill the chips are a golden brown.

This is a very easy meal and sooooooooooo good. I also half the recipe and had plenty for 2 meals for 2 of us.

This is delicious. I halfed the recipe and it made plenty for 2 meals for my husband and I.
