My Mom's Delicious Tuna Noodle Casserole: A Comfort Food Classic
To make this casserole, you'll need:
- 1 bag of egg noodles
- 2 small cans of tuna
- 1 can of Campbell's cream of chicken soup
- 1 can of Campbell's cream of mushroom soup
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 cups of milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Tillamook cheese for topping
- Sour cream and cheddar ruffle chips
- Casserole Dish (I use a Pyrex 3-quart 9x13)
First, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions, and preheat your oven to 375°F.
In a large pot, melt the stick of butter over medium heat. Add the cans of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup, and stir to combine. Gradually add in the milk, stirring constantly to ensure a smooth sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drain and add both cans of tuna to the mixture and break up tuna pieces to combine well.
Add the cooked egg noodles to the pot with the sauce, and stir until the noodles are fully coated.
Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish, and top with shredded Tillamook cheese and crushed chips (I do two layers or each). Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
When the casserole is done, let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
