Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (321 votes)

Known as Tuna-Pea Wiggle to some, this family-friendly tuna noodle casserole tends to be made with canned soup and whole milk, which means high fat and sodium. We remedy this by making our own creamy mushroom sauce with nonfat milk thickened with a bit of flour. Look for whole-wheat egg noodles—they have more fiber than regular egg noodles (but this dish will work well and taste great with either).



READER'S COMMENT:
"This is a great dish! I used a mix of broccoli and carrots instead of peas and added extra tuna. It definitely needs more seasoning. The kids couldn't stop eating it! A good way to sneak veggies into their dinner! "

Tuna Noodle Casserole Failure

This was the worst tuna noodle casserole I have ever made or eaten. I use the word "eaten" however, my fiance and I took a couple of bites and pushed it away. We threw the remainder away...such a waste. I followed the directions exactly, no substitute ingredients, etc.

sub worcestershire for sale

before adding the tuna to the casserole drain it well and shake low sodium worcestershire sauce on the tuna. It really ups the flavor. Also omit the added salt. We use LS Tuna to further reduce the sodium.

Could use more tuna

Relatively quick meal with good flavor but next time I'd add more tuna (maybe another 6 oz). Also, I don't have a oven skillet so I transferred the sauce and noodles to a 9x13 Pyrex which worked just fine for me.

Easy with good flavor
