Tuna Casserole with steamed Ribbed squash and Greek salad

I made this last night and it was delicious and we still have plenty left for lunch tomorrow. This is so easy and filling and versatile, feel free to add extra veggies, i.e. peas, etc. to the mix. 

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 pkg chow mein noodles (approx. 250-300g)
  • 1 cup finely diced celery
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1-2 bunches of spring onions
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cans mushroom pieces and stems
  • 3 cans (240oz) tuna
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Grated or shredded cheese to sprinkle on top


In a bowl combine all the ingredients except the noodles and mix well.

Now put the noodles with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl and mix again.

In a greased casserole scoop all the above and gently press down.

Spread the cheese on top - I use a lot

Freeze and take out when in a hurry and do not have time to do an entire meal from scratch.

Bake at 350 F / 180C for ±40 minutes till hot, bubbly, and toasted.

When was tuna noodle casserole invented?

According to American food writer Heather Arndt Anderson, the first recipe for tuna casserole appeared in Sunset Magazine in 1930. It was called Noodles and Tuna Fish en Casserole and included mushrooms and a cheese topping.

Tuna casserole

Tuna casserole is a casserole primarily made with pasta and canned tuna, with canned peas and corn sometimes added. The dish is often topped with potato chips, corn flakes, bread crumbs, or canned fried onions. Tuna casseroles are budget-friendly and comforting.

How do you moisten dry tuna casserole?

Place in a casserole dish, pour in a few cups of hot chicken or beef broth, cover it, and let it sit a bit.

We do have many other Casserole recipes
