Tuna with tasty onions, and sweet basil. I've been making this for many years and often have it requested by family.


  • 1/2 lb. noodles, cooked
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (undiluted)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small can tuna, drained
  • 1 can peas, drained saving juice
  • 3/4 cup milk


Mix everything together. Put in baking dish. Add juice from peas if it looks dry. We add Italian bread crumbs to cover. Bake in 350 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes.

Not really a casserole since you don't bake it but so simple and really good.


  • 1 box macaroni and cheese (I used shells and cheese because it's what I had on hand)
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can peas (next time I am using half a can. I thought there were too many peas)
  • 1 can tuna (I used two cans because I like extra)


Make the macaroni and cheese according to directions on box. When complete add tuna, cream of mushroom soup, and peas. Mix thoroughly and heat till bubbly. That's it!

My husband loves tuna casserole but it was always such a production. This is so simple, he can make it any time he wants it.

Tuna Noodle "Casserole"


Gosh! I have made this since I was a teenager. Great recipe for a tight budget. My family prefers cream of chicken in place of cream of mushroom. I leave out the peas or occasionally use frozen peas. Tastes great with applesauce and a salad.

Thanks for posting! (05/13/2010)

In large skillet, saute' chopped onion in margarine until slightly browned and tender. Add tuna, soup, and milk to the skillet. Stir and simmer until it thickens. Add 1 1/3 cups of cheese. Stir until melted. Spray casserole pan with cooking spray. Pour in soup mixture first. Then mix in most of the noodles. You may not use all the noodles so the casserole is not too dry. Add remaining cheese on top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly edges. Uncover and brown the cheese. Remove and let set for 5 minutes and serve.
