Recipe Tips

  • If you prefer this tuna casserole to be a little less crunchy, then cover it with aluminum foil before placing it in the oven. If you want the topping to brown a little, then remove the foil roughly ten minutes before removing it from the oven.
  • You can mix half of the cheese through the sauce for an extra cheesy casserole.
  • A popular variation on this recipe is to use egg noodles instead of pasta. This choice usually comes down to preference. Personally, I prefer the pasta over the noodles.
  • If you love a crunchy topping, simply mix one cup of breadcrumbs, two tablespoons of melted butter, and the cheese from the recipe in a bowl. Once done, add the mixture to the top of the casserole before placing it in the oven. Other variations for a crunchy topping include crushed potato chips, fried onions, or crushed corn flakes.
  • You don't have to bake the casserole, you can instead heat the sauce mixture over the stovetop. The only thing you will lose is the crispy cheese on top.
  • I recommend picking your favorite brand of tinned soups for the best result.
