When you need supper fast, this tuna casserole with peas, peppers and onions makes a super one-dish meal. Cooked chicken breast works well in place of the tuna. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cook noodles according to package directions for al dente, adding peas during the last minute of cooking; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine soup, sour cream, cheese, milk and salt; stir in tuna, onion and pepper. Add noodles and peas; toss to combine.
  3. Transfer to an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. In a small bowl, toss bread crumbs with melted butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 6 servings.

"Very good."

"We loved this! Very easy to make and it was a nice change to have peas in a tuna casserole as opposed to the standard broccoli. Will definitely make this again!!"

MY REVIEW

"This casserole was barely ok. I'm surprised so many people like it. I guess it just depends on what you are used to making. I thought it was too dry and had almost no flavor. Definitely needs more sauce and a lot more spice to make it edible. Removing from my recipe box."

"Nice, basic and quick meal. I, too, thought it could have used a little more sauce."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 12, 2015

"My family is not a big fan of tuna but the recipe looked so easy and good I tried it and I will be making it again. Next time I will use about 4 cups of noodles as I thought it could have been a little more moist. Really good and it made a lot. Also used no yolk noodles to help with the calories."
