Tuna noodle casserole is a classic food just like your mother and grandmother used to make. Get more vintage recipes in this collection of 24 Old-Fashioned Recipes.
- Classed Up Tuna Noodle Casserole - Everything in this meal is fresh and scratch-made. Fresh mushrooms, fresh herbs, quality tuna, and a homemade sauce instead of cream soup.
- Puffy Tuna and Rice Casserole (pictured, top right) - Recipes with tuna don't always use noodles. Rice works well, too. This particular recipe is "puffy" from separating the egg whites from the yolks.
- Tuna Casserole Topped with Crispy Hash Browns - Get ready for a wonderful, carb-overload. Spaghetti, macaroni, egg noodles, and hash browns fill this dish. Add bacon, sausage, or ham for a little extra protein.
- Ritzy Tuna Noodle Casserole (pictured, top left) - Ritz crackers form a crunchy crust on top of this excellent tuna noodle casserole. Celery and mushrooms complement the peas.
- Tuna Noodle Casserole Remix (pictured, bottom left) - Broccoli, cauliflower, and black olives replace peas, which are normally in a tuna noodle casserole. A creamy sauce holds everything together and a Parmesan panko topping is the icing on the cake.
- Tuna Noodle Casserole with Leeks and Fresh Dill - Adding leeks and dill to a tuna noodle casserole is a great idea because they add nice flavors. Gruyere cheese makes it creamy and potato chips add a little saltiness.
- Upscale Tuna Noodle Casserole (pictured, bottom right) - Not all tuna casseroles are created equal. In this recipe, the tuna and pasta are covered in a dreamy béchamel sauce and herbs bring in more flavor.
- Truffled Tuna Noodle Casserole - Here's another fancy-schmancy recipe. A mushroom and white wine sauce replaces canned soup, fried shallots and chives replace the breadcrumb topping, and truffle oil and truffle salt add a new dimension of flavor.
- Grandma's Tuna Casserole (pictured, bottom right) - You can always trust Grandma's food to be good. This particular recipe is simple, but definitely not boring. Onions and peppers add a great burst of flavor to this easy tuna casserole recipe.
