Jane’s Tuna Casserole

 When I don’t know what to make for dinner I go back to this comforting recipe for Janes’s Tuna Noodle Casserole.

Noodles, tuna, cheese, mushroom soup, peas, celery…a winning combination! Oh, and how could I not mention the added cheese and the melted cheese on top! While the noodles were cooking, I was getting the other ingredients ready. Combine it all and that’s it! The directions in this recipe called for it being made in the microwave but I used the stove top and the oven . Really just as quick so I think it is up to you! Pretty simple and comforting, this comes together very quickly. My friend Jane gave me this recipe and we are glad she did!

Jane’s Tuna Casserole

1 cup frozen peas

2 stalks celery, finely sliced

1 tbsp oil

1 10 oz of cream of mushroom soup

1/2 of the soup can of milk

1 can tuna , drained and flaked

4 cups cooked macaroni  ( 2 cups uncooked) ***I used a 1/2 bag of thick egg noodles

2 cups grated cheddar cheese, divided ***1 cup goes in the casserole, 1 cup goes on top


  1. Cook the macaroni/noodles
  2. Spray a casserole dish ***I used a square casserole and it fit perfectly
  3. In a medium-sized saucepan, saute the celery in the oil just until soft ***I did not let the celery brown
  4. To the celery ( in the saucepan) add the peas,  the mushroom soup & 1/2 the can of milk. Mix and warm through
  5. Add the tuna and mix well
  6. Next add the cooked pasta and the cheese, mixing so that it is throughly combined
  7. Put the noodle mixture into the greased casserole dish
  8. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of grated cheddar all over the top of the casserole
  9. Bake at 350F for 35`40 minutes until hot & bubbly and the cheese is melted nicely

Serve with a nice salad alongside!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
