I love easy dishes you can make when you need something quick.  This Cheesy Tuna Casserole is quick, easy comfort food at its best and I usually have the ingredients on hand.

3 cups uncooked medium pasta shells, cooked according to package directions for  about 9 minutes and drained
2 (5 ounce) cans tuna, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion (can use regular or green onions)
1 cup frozen green peas, drained (could use canned peas)
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (4 ounce) can mushroom pieces, drained
1 cup shredded cheese (I used 4 cheese Mexican. You can use whatever kind you like)
Cheese crackers (about one cup crumbled)
Cook pasta according to package directions for about 9 minutes, drain and set aside.  Combine all remaining ingredients and mix with a spoon except cheese crackers. Mix in the pasta.  Pour into a sprayed casserole dish and crumble cheese crackers on top.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven 35 to 40 minutes. Makes about 8 servings. Enjoy!

  1. Tuna casserole is one of my favorites. Definitely intend to make this one. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  2. I live alone and search for recipes that I can make once, freeze in small containers, and get several meals. Could this be prepared and placed in individual serving tins, frozen, then thawed and cooked?

  4. Dear Miss Judy,
    Your post today brought back many memories (all of them good, even when I accidentally up-ended my tuna casserole all over the oven door, lol!) We lived to tell the tale and the “scraped up parts” tasted just as good as the rest. 🙂 Just wanted you to know that you’ve “won” The Versatile Blogger Award. (see: ) It’s a pleasure to recognize a true Southern lady!
