Cook and Tell: Tuna Casserole

03 May

If you followed this blog for the last few posts (not counting the very last one), you’ll know that I’ve been on a carb craze. Well, this post is no different.

I came up with this dish when I was looking for something to make for dinner. It needed to be easy, fast, and filling. This Tuna Casserole meets all of the above mentioned criteria. It’s creamy and rich, and the perfect comfort food.

I won’t hold you in suspense any longer…

Tuna Casserole

Tuna Casserole
2 cups of Pasta (elbow, shells, rigatoni, or farfalle)
1 can of tuna in water, drained
1 can Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 – 1 cup of grated cheese (Mozzarella or any other you like)
Bread Crumbs to taste
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.

Bring water to boil, add salt and pasta. Boil pasta until al dente. Drain the pasta and return back to the pot. Mix in Cream of Mushroom soup, drained tuna and cheese. Transfer the mixture into a casserole dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake for approximately 15 minutes. Serve while hot.

    I did take pictures but I took them with poor lighting because it was LATE when we ate last night. But
    i think I’ll post anyway because it was such a hit. I’ll let you know when I publish. Thanks again.

    I had this last night. Added a little chopped spinach and WOW, I couldn’t beleive it, my kids went back for seconds and some for thirds. That NEVER happens. Who would have guessed a casserole could do THAT?!

    I don’t understand how people cut out anything. I am not afraid of the almighty carb, I embrace it :)

    A classic comfort food. I seem to always be on a carb craze :) In reality, your body needs more carbs than anything else. It kills me when people cut out carbs entirely. Go you for not being afraid of the almighty carb :)

    I’ve got no problem with tuna casserole and this one, although classic ingredients like mine, it looks cooler.
