15 Tuna Noodle Casserole Recipes

Tuna Noodle Casseroles with a Twist

Tuna Rice Casserole with Spinach
  • Potato Chip-Topped Tuna Noodle CasseroleThis easy tuna casserole is very similar to traditional recipes, the exception being that it's topped with crushed potato chips! The flavor combination is a wonderful twist on an already incredible recipe.
  • Tuna Rice Casserole with SpinachRecipes with tuna don't always use noodles. Rice works well, too. Cheese, homemade cream of mushroom soup, and spinach make this tuna casserole something special.
  • Tuna Casserole Topped with Crispy Hash BrownsGet 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 CasseroleRitz crackers form a crunchy crust on top of this excellent tuna noodle casserole. Celery and mushrooms complement the peas.
  • Tuna Noodle Casserole RemixBroccoli, 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 DillAdding 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 CasseroleNot 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 CasseroleHere'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.
