How to Make Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes or according to package directions, Drain and rinse.
    2. Position rack in upper third of oven and preheat broiler.
    3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, mushrooms and salt
    and cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add wine
    and cook until evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables; stir to coat. Add milk and pepper and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Stir in tuna, peas and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese until evenly incorporated. Then, stir in the noodles (the pan will be very full). Remove from the heat.
    4. Sprinkle the casserole with breadcrumbs and the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan. Broil until bubbly and lightly browned on top, 3 to 4 minutes.
