Modern Tuna Casserole
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min.
Love this recipe -- really good idea for a quick and tasty meal. For flavor I added garlic & celery to the vegs, and chili powder,a little mayo & whole grain mustard to the tuna. Cooked the white sauce in the pan I used to cook the pasta and added it along with the pasta to the tuna and veggies that I cooked in the cast iron skillet. Topped with Panko and baked in the oven at 350 for about 6 minutes. Turned out amazing!
A bit lack-luster in flavor. Very basic tatse. Not sure the word "modern" is warranted in the title. But for grandma's basic tuna casserole with very to-be-expected flavor, this works. But if you're looking for something fresh and/or more aligned with a modern nutritional sensibility around carb to protein balance, this is not it.

Excellent healthier option for tuna casserole.
Followed recipe and it was délicieux !
This was wonderful. Loved that it was full of veggies and didn't use canned soup. Since there is only two of us, I cut the pasta in half and it still made more than we could eat. Will definitely be making this again.
I followed the recipe mostly as written and it was very good. The only thing I did differently was add the whole box of noodles, which is about 4 cups uncooked and not 3. I didn't mind that it wasn't as saucy. I appreciate that even my two year old ate a bowl full and he got 6 different veggies in his belly! My dad is following a strict diet of calorie counting and I measured a portion and took to his house and he said it was very satisfying! Thank you for this recipe.
I read through this recipe, noted it call for half and half. The total fats were 11 gm. In a traditional tuna noodle casserole there are 4-5 gm fat. So I don't see that this is healthier. Probably won't try it.
Finally a tuna casserole recipe that doesn't rely on canned cream soup! Kudos! I made a bit more sauce and used medium shell pasta as that's what I had on hand but that's not an issue here. I do prefer my casseroles baked in the oven which is what I did. Very good!
Made this last night, followed recipe exactly. I believe it would taste better with chicken. The veggies were a really good mix.
