Tracy (Amuse-bouche for Two)

Tuna noodle casserole reminds me of my childhood, in that every other book I read at that time made mention of it. However, I have never eaten it myself. It does look good though.

Tuna noodle casserole in our house when I was growing up always seemed to involve potato chips. One time, when my husband and I were first married, we attempted to recreate that dish. One bite and we tossed it down the garbage disposal -- too much salt! Your version looks delicious, and maybe will give me the courage to try again.


Julie, I adore tuna noodle casserole. Ours ALWAYS came out of the box so maybe it's time to give this homemade version a try.


I am a transplanted American living in Edinburgh Scotland for the past 20 years (beautiful place, btw). Rarely/never do I long for any recipes using canned soup but having looked at this tuna noodle beauty I might just have to nip out and buy a can. Nostalgic comfort food of the highest order. Question though: can I use mild cheddar cheese plus some added jalapenos? I wouldn't find pepper jack here and can't recall what kind of cheese jack is (other than a mildish cows' milk one). Thanks

I've actually never had a tuna noodle casserole. But yours looks good.


Yum yum yum!! Yay for Mike for sticking to his tried and true recipes! Who cares about non fancy recipes? That one just looks good!


So glad you reminded me of this infamous casserole! GREAT idea to spice it up!


Tracy, I don't think I ever ate this until I was an adult. Sheltered childhood, I guess.

Lydia, a casserole topped with potato chips seems like a waste of potato chips to me. I have seen recipes that use potato chips on the top of casseroles. I think cornflakes were another thing people used to (perhaps still) use to give a casserole a crunchy top.

Wendi, I had no idea you could buy a box of tuna noodle casserole mix!

Kellie, jack cheese is mild and semi-soft. I think mild cheddar cheese plus added jalapenos would work perfectly. I've never been to Edinburgh but from what I understand about the Scottish climate (cold, damp) it's the perfect place to be eating tuna noodle casserole.

Food Hunter, I don't think I ever had one until I met my husband. It wasn't something my mother made and I don't think I'd have ever made one if I hadn't had Mike's.

Elizabeth, definitely non-fancy. :-)

Janelle, happy to remind you!


This might just hit the spot when we get another foot of snow tomorrow!

I have to admit, I don't think I've ever had tuna casserole. Based on other things you've made, if you made it for me, I think I just might give it a try! Thank you for stopping by my table with your birthday greeting! It made me smile!

I have fond memories of Tuna Noodle Casserole from my 50s childhood. It was one of the first things I learned to make (I must have been 12). I have made it many different ways - different cheeses, different noodles, all kinds of vegetables, and have even used leftover salmon filet (v. good, btw)and chicken. The one thing I always do is add a crunchy topping...but not potato chips. Buttered cracker crumbs or panko


Oh, that sounds like just the thing for a cold rainy day like today. Yum.


wow it looks wonderful!!!!

my husband, too, has an affinity for canned tuna which alarmed me after we got married. he recently insisted on buying canned tuna on sale but i've had no idea what to do with them. i think your tuna casserole may be the perfect thing. thanks for sharing!

This sounds like a great twist on a classic. Since we are trying to reduce carbs, I use "noodles" made of strips of zucchini. A great and healthy alternative!

Hey i have some information about this, Tuna casserole is a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added. The casserole is often topped with potato chips, corn flakes or canned fried onions.


I have tried and tried, but I just can't get to like tuna casserole. Everybody got those foods, right?

Magic of making up

I made this and I can honestly say that it is a really, really good recipe.
