Feeling nostalgic? Whip up a batch of this classic tuna casserole filled with tuna, noodles, and peas!
Growing up, my grandmother made dinner on week nights. She had a rotation of a few meals that she made over and over again. As a child, this sometimes got old.
Now that she’s gone, I wish I could have more time to spend with her and commit her recipes to memory. One of the meals she made was tuna casserole. I have tried to recreate her recipe over time and am sharing it with you today.
Tuna casserole recipe
Tuna casserole is one of those meals that just screams comfort food. It’s one of my husband’s favorite meals and he always wants claim of the leftovers when I make it. I
made multiple batches of this casserole and stored them in my freezer before both of my kids were born. It was so nice to have something readily available for dinner without having to cook or shop. It was a lifesaver! Read my tutorial on how to freezer casseroles here.
I use a big can of tuna in this casserole, along with an entire bag of frozen peas. It works equally well with white or whole wheat elbow macaroni. I have even made it with other pasta shapes – whatever you have on hand.
The abundance of peas in this meal make it especially kid-friendly. I don’t know about you, but my kids are gaga for peas. They even like them frozen – straight out of the bag!
