  • 3 ounces wide egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 shallot or green onion, finely minced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (5-ounce) can water-packed tuna, very well drained
  • 1/4 cup frozen peans
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon Panko-style breadcrumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray two individual ramekins with cooking spray.

  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the shallot or green onion for 1 minute, stirring. Add the flour to the pan and, using a whisk, stir over medium heat until flour is well cooked, about 1 minute. Slowly add broth and milk, whisking until mixture bubbles and thickens, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Turn off the heat, stir in cheese and stir until it melts. Stir in tuna and peas and toss well with the noodles. Spoon into the prepared ramekins. Combine Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and Italian herbs and sprinkle over the top. Bake 20 minutes until lightly browned and bubbly.

I appreciate the fact that this casserole serves two. It's often hard to make a dish for just two people without having a ton of leftovers. Plus, tuna casserole is definitely a comfort food that reminds me of growing up.

Tuna Casserole has always been one of my favorite go to meals, especially in the winter. This recipe looks pretty good, and a lot like I would make it myself. I do like to use fusilli pasta instead of noodles, as it is easier (and just as tasty) that way. I also use diced onions instead of scallions or green onions, and add frozen mushrooms and corn to add to the flavor and make it a well rounded one dish meal.

This was tasty! I typically only cook for one, so this was the perfect amount for me and leftovers the next day. I made it in one small casserole dish. The noodles on the very top were very hard, so I think I will use slightly less noodles next time.
