Has anyone every tried putting 4 to 8 ounces of cream cheese, evaporated milk, and a small can of sliced mushrooms in their tuna casserole recipe? I did along with the normal ingredients of cream of mushroom soup and diced onions stirred into elbow macaroni. I fixed it last week and it was fantastically smooth and creamy. The family just loved it! They are asking me to fix it again and soon. Anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone has ever tried it before? If you haven't, do try it as a smooth twist on an old American favorite.

The only real differences in this method and the oven method are that heating it on the stove-top forms a crust on the botto and baking it forms a crust on the TOP.

I have tried many tuna casseroles and found one that I really like. It is Stouffer's microwave tuna casserole. It has tuna, noodles, peas, mushrooms, and sauce.

Ad

Does anyone have a recipe like this? I like that the sauce is not too thick or too creamy.
I appreciate your help.

Hi Annie, I love the microwave Stouffer's tuna casserole, too. I haven't tried to do so yet, but I think it would be fairly easy to recreate at home.

Based on a casserole that would make 4 large or 6 medium servings, this would be my first attempt: Try at your own risk!

Dried pasta noodles for 4-6 servings
3/4 cup frozen green peas (rinsed gently under warm water to thaw)
2, 5 oz. cans of tuna, drained and flaked
1 small (?oz?) can of mushroom pieces, drained
1/3 cup small diced celery stalk
1 regular sized (?oz?) can of cream of chicken concentrate soup
- Plus 1/4 to 1/3 can (the soup can) of milk (just enough to thin the concentrated soup, but not enough to make it runny)
1 cup of fine bread crumbs
2 T Butter, melted
Spray vegetable oil (Pam)

1. Cook the noodles one or two minutes less than package directions. Drain and pour into large mixing bowl.
2. Add the peas, tuna, mushrooms and celery. Stir to combine.
3. In a 2 or 3 cup liquid measure, thoroughly mix the soup and milk. Pour over noodle mixture and stir well to coat.
4. Rinse out the liquid measure cup and use it to melt the butter in the microwave. (Watch this, don't let the butter start cooking!)
5. Remove measure cup from microwave and stir in bread crumbs to coat.
6. Spray casserole dish with Pam then pour in noodle mix. Top evenly with the bread crumbs.

Still just experimenting here, but I'd probably bake it at 350 to 375 degrees, covered, for about 35 minutes, then uncover, to toast up the bread crumb topping, and cook for another 10 minutes or so.

Again, this is untested, so try at your own risk, but it sure seems like this should come out close to the Stouffer's frozen tuna casserole. Good luck and happy eats. :)
