Baked Tuna Casserole & Over 20 Recipes for Using Tuna

Updated on February 28, 2017

Easy & Cheesy Tuna Casserole

Ever since I can remember I have been making this Baked Tuna Casserole recipe, but that wasn't always the case.

When I was growing up I never liked tuna, especially in a casserole. However, as a newlywed I learned it was a quick and easy meal that didn't cost very much. The trick was to make one I would eat.

What really works about this recipe for our family is that as a vegetarian I can make it with tuna for my husband and leave it out for myself. I simply divide the main recipe and add the fish in his part last (cooking them in separate containers of course).

So I came up with this recipe and have served it at my table to family and friends for years. To some of us it's a sort of comfort food, because it reminds us of home.

I think you'll like this Baked Tuna Casserole. It's easy and it can also be frozen for make-ahead-meals.

Don't forget to check out the recipes, videos and products I have selected especially for the Baked Tuna Casserole fan. Enjoy!

Cook Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: Approx. 45 minutes

Serves: 4-6


  • cup of soft butter (if too dry add more butter)
  • 1 pound bag of egg noodles (or 1 pound box of elbow macaroni) precooked al dente
  • 10 ounce can Campbell's Cream of Celery Soup (98% fat free)
  • 2 inch block of Kraft Velveeta Cheese product 2% milk (cubed)
  • 1 can Green Giant small green peas (not frozen)
  • 2 or 3 of a 5-7 ounce can of tuna packed in water (drained)
  • tsp.dried: Italian Seasoning - tsp. dried Oregano
  • tsp. dried Parsley - ground black pepper - cup bread crumbs (optional)


  1. Pre-cook the noodles according to directions on the package. Wash and drain noodles to prevent overcooking.
  2. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Spray pans with cooking spray.
  3. 1. Drain peas. Drain tuna and break it into small pieces.
  4. 2. Mix together soup (do not add water), seasonings,and butter until smooth.
  5. 3. Add peas and tuna pieces. Add optional bread crumbs. Stir lightly.
  6. 4. Add cubed Velvetta cheese squares and stir. Add more cheese if you want it cheesier.
  7. 5. Pour mix into a greased 8x8 or 9x9 square baking dish or casserole dish.
  8. 6. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Stir and continue baking for 20 minutes until it starts to brown on top. Serve warm.
  9. NOTE: I use Albacore Solid White tuna in water, but my husband likes the regular tuna so I divide the mix and make his and mine in separate containers. The foil mini baking loaf pans work really great for us. Plus I can freeze this recipe in them and just heat them later.
  10. NOTE: Albacore tuna makes a dryer casserole so don't overbake it. Regular tuna in water or oil is not as dry. Both are very good.
