Quick Tuna Casserole



I am all for quick and easy dishes, as long as they are delicious!  I have been craving Tuna for some time now and decided it is about time to stop that craving.

Usually a good Tuna Sandwich will do it for me, but I wanted a more filling dish, and what better than to pair it up with pasta ..

If not for the bit of sauteing, this could almost be called a One-pot dish!


Quick Tuna Casserole

{this recipe can be doubled easily}

2 cups Pasta {any kind}
1 can (170g) Tuna in Oil
2 TB Butter
1 t Italian Herbs
2 Celery sticks, chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
2 Onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 can Mushroom Soup
1 cup Milk
1 1/2 cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/4 cup Parsley, chopped
Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Parsley, chopped - to garnish, optional
Paprika, optional

1.) Boil the Pasta, in a large pot, until al dente in lightly salted water.
2.) Meanwhile, Drain the Oil of the Tuna in a pan and add the Butter - add the Italian Herbs, Celery, Green Bell Pepper and Onions - saute until soft.
3.) Add the can of Mushroom Soup and Milk to the pan - stir continuously until thick.
4.) Drain the Pasta and place back in the pot - add the sauce mixture, the can of Tuna, Cheddar and Parsley - stir to combine - season to taste with Salt & Pepper.

Sprinkle extra Parsley and Paprika over and serve !
