This is an incredibly easy way to make tuna noodle casserole, and you will love the creamy results. This recipe, which is simple enough for a beginner cook to follow, is made with cream of mushroom soup, which many people do not eat by itself but love adding it to casseroles and other dishes. The dish also contains peas, although you can swap them for cooked slices of leek if you prefer, or even broccoli florets.
The egg noodles make this recipe more filling and of course the canned tuna eliminates the need for cooking fresh tuna (and also keeps your costs down – this is a budget meal.) This casserole is quite small so either serve it with crusty bread or make a simple salad to serve on the side. The recipe is also very easy to double or triple if you do want to make more of it.
If you prefer not to use fresh breadcrumbs in this tuna noodle casserole then buy the seasoned ones and halve the amount. Toss them in a tablespoon of melted butter before adding them to the casserole. Use freshly grated parmesan too; the ready-powdered kind lacks flavor.
