Creamy Tuna Corn Casserole is quick, easy and delicious – the perfect comfort dinner on the table in about 30 minutes !
Another version of the always popular mac-and-cheese – Creamy Tuna Corn Casserole. Cheesy tuna and creamy corn all combined with pasta make an easy, quick and delicious dinner.
I have always loved tuna and try to find more and more ways to cook with a can or two, or if I am lucky our local store would have some fresh tuna in stock.
My son does not care much for corn, not corn kernels or the creamed type I use in this recipe. But his love for anything creamy and, especially, cheesy won him over.
Since I made my first cheese sauce in the microwave, I have never gone back to the stove plate method. Easy, creamy and no lumps at all.
You can make the cheese sauce any way you prefer, either in the microwave as per the recipe, or if you have perfected the stove top method, go with that.
In a hurry ? Use store-bought ready to use cheese sauce ! You would need around 3 cups of sauce.
