Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole

March/April 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (358 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).

"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! "

Good recipe!

My DH loves tuna noodle casserole and I usually gag making it however, this easy skillet meal (which I used canned chicken for) turned out great! It made alot, so we froze some of it. Thanks for sharing!

Craving satisfied without the guilt

I used almond milk instead of milk simply because I don't like milk. I was unsure of the outcome, but it worked out beautifully. This is one of those recipes that satisfies without the guilt. I also used whole wheat flour.

No butter, no heavy cream or milk in my case

This was just ok. It tasted rather bland. I feel there is a better recipe out there for a tuna noodle dish with out me having to spend a lot of time to improve this one...


My first time making a casserole, half way into prep I realized I was out of bread crumbs, the notes say use sliced bread as alternate, I toasted honey whole wheat bread and crumbled it on top. I did not think my husband was going to go for it, he ended up going for seconds and needless to say there were no leftovers it was a hit with the kids as well, definitely will make again!

Easy and quick to make

this dish was very good and easy to make. i added some diced yellow peppers, carrots, garlic and celery in with the onions. and i had to use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose since its all i had, which required 9 tbsp instead of 6. but everything turned out well, my family enjoyed it and i will definitely be use in go to recipes becuz most of the ingredients are already sitting around :)
