Nice and easy recipe. I used whole wheat pasta and added a cup or so of cooked cauliflower rice and 2cans of tuna along with red onion. Loved the topping with paprika! Definitely use this again.
Your additions sound tasty Laura!
Had anyone ever used canned salmon instead of tuna
i've done a salmon VERSION based off of this recipe. you can change up the cream soup to mushroom and mix some dill/salt/pepper in with your buttered breadcrumb mix. (i leave the cheese out entirely for salmon, but sometimes add some lemon juice).
i use the proportions of this recipe with any kind of protein/soup/noodle mix, always turns out well.
I used Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Celery soups. Also added some chopped mushrooms and onions. DELICIOUS!!
This is the 2d time I've used this recipe. Both times I have omitted the mayonnaise nd paprika. I added a red onion , garlic powder, and seasoning salt. I also used ×2 ,272gm cans of tuna packed in water drained one tin of celery soup, and filled the can with whole milk , 2 1/2 cups of frozen peas and 2 cups of elbow macaroni. It was very good.
I used this recipe except I only had cream of mushroom with garlic. It turned out delish! Thanks!
Drain the tuna ??
Yes Liz, drain the tuna.
Followed recipe ingredients. Only change was baked for 30 minutes. Super good. Will definitely make again.
Thank you Laurel!
Is that 4oz uncooked pasta? Seems small lol probably stupid question.
Tiffany, that is 4 oz uncooked pasta.
There is no cream of celery soup available in Germany- can i take anything else?
This was the best Tuna Casserole I've made. I added 1/4 of frozen peas and some Herbs DE Province spice. Next time I'll add another 1/2 cup of milk because my egg noodles soaked up the sauce.
Turned out very good, surprisingly, I really like tuna.
This is my family’s absolute favorite recipe. I have made it for my kids since they were all young! And I have to make a double recipe as my husband can eat a whole tray himself!!! We’ve passed it down to the next generation and is now a favorite of my grandkids!!!
One of my family's as well Megan. A great economical dish!
