Tuna Casserole Recipes
8 oz. noodles of choice-we like seashells
1 can healthy request cream mushroom soup
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 Tablespoons-4 oz. cream cheese
2 cans tuna or less if you desire
1 small pkg. frozen peas
Cook noodles, drain and place in baking dish. Sprinkle top of
noodles with peas. The hot noodles will unthaw the peas quickly but
you can add the peas several minutes before the noodles are done
cooking and drain peas and noodles together. In mixing bowl, add
cream of mushroom soup, yogurt, cream cheese and tuna. Stir until
well blended. Season with pepper and stir into noodles. Serve
Healthy Tuna Casserole
If you want a healthy version of tuna casserole, omit the
cream of mushroom soup and add the following:
1 Cup cottage cheese
1/4 Cup low fat mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Mix these three ingredients and stir into cooked noodles. If your
kids are like mine and they don't like the cottage cheese curds
puree in blender before adding to the noodles.
Also for a
healthy version of tuna casserole use whole wheat penne or other
