Thread: Tuna/noodle casserole?

    Default Tuna/noodle casserole?

    I have the urge for tuna casserole for supper but apparently misfiled and
    thus lost the recipe. As I recall it:

    2 C noodles cooked
    1 can water packed tuna
    1 can peas
    1 can cream of something soup - mushroom?
    Bread crumbs on top

    Cook 350 for 30 min uncovered.

    Is that right? I've not made it in a very long time. If not, corrections
    and additions/subtractions please?

    TIA

    Since celery works well in tuna salad, maybe cream of celery soup.

    I top my casserole with grated Parmesan instead of breadcrumbs and dot
    with butter.

    Good luck,

    I always sauteed some onions and celery and added it along with the
    tuna and cream of mushroom soup. I top with parmesan bread crumbs.
    Haven't made one of those in eons.....now you have me thinking about
    it :-D

    The mushroom soup is correct but leave out the peas. I like peas and
    I know many tuna casserole recipes call for them, but I don't want
    them in tuna casserole. Also, the bread crumbs are optional

    This is the long standing standard for Tuna Noodle Casserole. Any recipe
    must start from this.This is where the dish originated. I use Cambells Cream
    of Celery Soup unless I'm sneaking in a bit of mushrooms.

    Tuna, Noodle and Mushroom Soup Casserole: 1975
    from The Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker Fifth
    Revision, 1975
    4 Large Servings
    An excellent emergency dish.
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
    Have ready:
    2cups Boiled Noodles, Drain:
    1 can tuna fish: 7 ounces
    Separate it with a fork into large flakes. Do not mince it. Grease an
    ovenproof dish. Arrange a layer of noodles, then sprinkle it with fish and
    so on, with noodles on top. Pour over this mixture:
    1 cup condensed mushroom soup
    Season the soup with: Worcestershire sauce, curry powder or dry sherry
    One-fourth cup chopped parsley
    Cover the top with:
    Buttered cornflakes or cracker crumbs
    Bake until the top is brown.

    I haven't made it in a while but I usually skip the canned soup and
    make a white sauce with half milk and half chicken broth.

    I also saute some onion in celery in butter before adding the flour
    to make the sauce.

    I top mine with buttered corn flake crumbs.

    Mom topped hers with crumbled potato chips, w/ peas and Cream of
    Mushroom. Childhood memories of drastic quantities of disgust around
    that dish.

    No celery for me. If I wanted it, I'd switch to vegetable broth. If
    I wanted mushrooms, this is where I'd them. Also, I'd use frozen peas
    instead of canned, one cup is a good measurement.

    A mixture of parmesan bread crumbs for me.

    The big problem is that I made it last year and it just wasn't what I
    thought I remembered. It completely missed the "spot" I wanted to
    hit; probably because tuna noodle casserole wasn't a childhood comfort
    food. Never had it until I was an adult and then not many times at
    that... but it always sounds good when others talk about it. I prefer
    creamed tuna on toast.

    Great way to use up stale potato chips! Try rolling your chicken
    pieces in them instead of corn chips when you do oven fried chicken.
    I used to like that as a kid.

    I like chicken rice casserole better - make "white" sauce using
    cornstarch and chicken broth, saute onion and celery bits (and green
    pepper if I've got any) - always buttered fresh white bread crumbs on
    top.

    Use frozen peas, not canned. And make sure they're rinsed. The
    last time I tried to make TNC I used a box of peas that had a bunch
    of sand in them and it ruined the whole dish. It was so traumatic
    I haven't tired to make it again for about 15 years.

    Who ever heard of sand in frozen peas?

    Looks about right, but I use frozen peas instead of canned. Drain the
    tuna before mixing it with the Cream of Something soup. Could be
    crushed potato chips on top you don't want to be sodium deficient.

    I make it with cream-of-celery soup, though being a mushroom lover I might try
    that suggestion next time. Cream-of-asparagus works too. I fry onions first and
    add the soup. I also found that I needed the soup mixture _very_ runny before
    adding it to the pasta, otherwise the finished casserole is too dry.

    The one I make now, adapted from my adoptive mother's version, has tuna,
    cream of mushroom (I make my own if I have the stuff), noodles, and the
    topping is potato chips. I also like to melt colby and monterey jack
    cheeses in the creamed mushroom soup and add a little milk to keep it from
    being too thick. And sometimes, instead of baking it like a casserole, I
    just heat it on the stove and crumble the chips on top of each serving.

    I've never put peas in mine, but it sounds good. I'd just use frozen
    sweet peas instead of canned peas. But I like to eat my peas while
    they're still a bright green color, so I'd probably cook up a batch of
    tuna casserole filling without the peas, then divide what I want to keep
    as leftovers from what I want to eat at the time and just add peas to my
    helping.

    What you can also do is simply pop open the can of tuna (but the solid
    white albacore works best for this) drain it well, break up the chunks as
    best you can, maybe drizzle a little olive oil in it to give each hunk
    something that'll cling to it, then toss it all with some seasoned flour.
    Fry the dredged tuna hunks in hot oil and use that as a topping for the
    noodles and creaminess.

    Always:
    Drain the tuna well.
    Use defrosted frozen peas.
    Add 1/3 to 1/2 can whole milk mixed with the soup.
    Use buttered fresh breadcrumbs or crushed potato chips.

    Optional:
    Sauteed onion and/or celery and/or green pepper.
    Water chestnuts, cut in small pieces.

    I prefer using rotini pasta instead of noodles.
    I have subbed cream of celery, cream of onion, and broccoli-cheese
    soup for the cream of mushroom.

    Now you've made me want to make this, as I havn't made it for quite a
    while. :-)

    Or buy tuna packed in olive oil to start with, if you can find it.
    The last I got was from Trader Joe's.
