Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole

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! "

I was so excited about this recipe because my family loves tuna casserole. The onions and mushrooms cooked in the wine sounded divine. I followed everything perfectly, and it was bland, no flavor at all.


This is a great recipe!! Both my husband and I love it! It was perfect for using leftover egg noodles I had made earlier in the week. I followed the recipe exactly, except next time I might add a minced clove of garlic when sauteing the onions. Also, I might sprinkle a little chopped italian parsley on the top with the breadcrumbs and parmesan. I hope everyone tries this delicious recipe!


This dish is really delicious. It has become an instant favorite in my house for dinner. However, since we try to watch how often we eat tuna we've substituted the tuna for chicken since the first time I made it. It was still fantastic. Next time, I'm going to substitute shallots for some of the onion to punch up the flavor a bit more. Overall, I love this recipe just the way it is and because it is so easy to tweak in order to create a slightly different dish for variety.


I thought this was a great recipe! Felt good to eat some good comfort food without all the guilt!


In response to an above comment--a carbohydrate serving = approximately 15 grams. They rounded down slightly, which is entirely appropriate to do. --Registered Dietitian in Virginia
