Arielle's Favorite Tuna Casserole

This is a favorite in my household. My kids love it (named after my daughter although). Back then I would make crescent rolls filled with cheese partially baked then set on top to finish into a filled roll "crust." Now, I tend to just sprinkle with cheese and let it bake and bake biscuits on the side. This is the best to get veggies down my kids some days. LOTS of cheese. I've added corn when I was low on peas and it was good. Can play with what you have & your personal tastes. This is just our basic recipe. NOT the best for low-cal diets or non-cheese lovers.

How to Make Arielle's Favorite Tuna Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta al dente (9 minutes) or as directed on package. Drain.
  2. Combine in the pot pasta, cream of mushroom soup, tuna, peas, salt, pepper, and cheese. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Transfer into a covered casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes prior to serving. Serving suggestions - serve with crusty bread and salad or green veggie. ;) Enjoy!
  5. Note: Sometimes I use 4 cans of tuna and reduce the cheese slightly - depends on our moods and how flaky I think the tuna is.
