Ready in 50 minutes
A favorite from the 1950's. OK, it's definitely not elegant, but it's very easy comfort food that can come together from items in your pantry.
"Awesome recipe! I changed it up a little though to fit my taste. I'm not a fan of mushrooms so I didn't add the mushrooms and used cream of celery soup instead. Also, I swapped the peas for 2/3 cup of grated carrots. If you're using elbow pasta instead of egg noodles, use about 8 oz. of pasta."- kmthresh

Top-ranked recipe named "Classic Tuna Noodle Casserole"
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Boil water in a large stockpot. Into the rapidly boiling water, cook the egg noodles for exactly 6 minutes. Rinse briefly in cold water to cool, and drain thoroughly.
Place into a large bowl, along with cream of mushroom soup, cheese, peas, tuna, and mushrooms. Mix gently but thoroughly.
(Optional) with a vegetable-oil dampened paper towel, lightly oil a casserole dish to prevent later sticking.
Bake casserole, covered, in 350-degree oven for 45-55 minutes. (Optionally, top with seasoned breadcrumbs and cook another 10 minutes uncovered.)

lauraserwerkarayan 1 year agoI liked the egg noodles, but the flavor was a little bland.
dakotarussell 1 year agoIt's hard to hate on tuna noodle casserole. I like to add a little sour cream to the mix, but otherwise this is pretty much the definitive recipe.
Kellonm2 1 year agoIt's OK. Not bad. Not great. It is easy. I just think there are better tuna casserole recipes on this site that are almost as easy.

Tcamp33 2 years agoThis was great! I was pinched for time so I made the soup, mixed in the ingredients (minus cheese) and then tossed in wheat egg noodles and it was awesome! My three year old, who typically doesn't like 'saucy' noodles, loved it! I also made it another time with chicken. Yum!!
