This tuna noodle casserole is a classic comfort food. A little mayonnaise in the sauce flavors this version, along with some chopped pimiento and mushrooms.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can (approx. 7 ounces) tuna, undrained, flaked
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 can (4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, or 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
  • 8 ounces noodles, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, tossed with 1 to 2 tablespoons melted butter

How to Make It

Heat the oven to 350° F (180° C/Gas 4) . Butter a 2-quart baking dish.

In a large skillet or sauté pan, melt butter; sauté onion and celery until tender. Stir in tuna, soup, mayonnaise, milk, mushrooms, parsley, and pimiento.

In the prepared casserole, combine the hot cooked noodles and the tuna mixture. Top with buttered bread crumbs.

Bake the casserole for 25 to 30 minutes, until the topping is lightly browned, and the filling is hot and bubbling around the edges.
