This recipe is very simple and quick to prepare if you are in a rush. I think this could very easily feed four people. I don’t cook with tuna a lot, I guess this Simple Tuna Casserole Recipe caught my eye. It was well worth the effort and the family enjoyed it. I guess that is what it is all about. Give this a try you wont regret it.
1 lb of egg noodles
4 Tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of flour
2 teaspoons of salt
2 cups of milk
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 regular size cans of Tuna ( 5 oz )
1 small can of peas ( 15 oz )
1. Cook egg noodles to” al dente” stage. Drain and Rinse
2. In a sauce pan combine butter, flour, salt and 2 cups of milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. Add the cheese and continue stirring until the cheese has melted.
3. In a large bowl combine the cheese sauce, egg noodles, peas and tuna.
4. Spread the mixture into a 13 x 9 inch baking dish and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated thoroughly. At this point I topped with more cheese and returned the casserole to the oven till the cheese was melted. This step is optional. Enjoy
