How to Make ~ My Tuna Noodle Casserole ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta and drain.

    In a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk together butter and flour. Cook for at least one minute, stirring constantly. Whisk in the milk, cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Stirring constantly until begins to lightly boil and thicken. Remove from heat and add cheeses, stirring until melted. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, sauté vegetables in 1 tablespoon oil until tender, add a little water to speed up or finish in microwave.
  3. In a large bowl, add pasta, peas, tuna, mayonnaise, vegetables and cheese sauce. Toss to coat pasta.
  4. Grease a 2 quart casserole dish and spread tuna mixture evenly into dish.

    I melted 1 tablespoon of butter and mixed with 1/2 cup bread crumbs and sprinkled evenly. Cover with foil and bake 35 - 40 minutes, remove foil and bake another 10 - 15 minutes or until browning.

    Sprinkle with parsley and more Parmesan if desired. Yum!!!
