Tuna Casserole

Tuna Casserole is one of those recipes that everyone has...but they are all just a little bit different. I tried many different recipes, most of which my family wouldn't eat, before I came up with this one. Once I finally got it right, they all decided that it was one of their favorite foods...(who would have thought?!)...Its creamy, delicious and very simple to put together.

Tuna Casserole

2 1/2 c. noodles (use whatever kind your family likes, I like to use the elbow macaroni)
1 can cream chicken soup
1/4 c. butter
1 c. sour cream
1 can tuna, well drained
2 c. grated cheese (I like to use Cheddar or Monterey Jack, use what your family likes)

Cook noodles according to package instructions. After noodles are cooked, drain and set aside in a mixing bowl. In a medium saucepan combine soup, butter and sour cream. Cook until butter is melted (stir continually so that your soup won't scorch). Add tuna and 1 c. cheese. Continue to cook until cheese melts and all ingredient are mixed well. Pour mixture over well drained noodles. Stir until everything is well combined. Put noodles into a greased (spray with pan coating) 8x8 baking pan or a casserole dish. Top with remaining 1 c. cheese. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

*If you make this ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator before cooking, your cooking time will be 35-45 minutes...if you make it and immediately put it in the oven your cooking time will be 25-30 minutes.

Happy Cooking~

  1. This was delicious! Baylie in particular was a fan. After every bite she'd say "I like this, Mommy." "This is good." "This is yummy." She's never gone on and on about a dish before. Pretty funny.
