Tuna Mac & Cheese Casserole

I have always been a fiend for tuna casserole. It and tuna melts are like the only thing I know how to make with tuna, so I try to switch it up on occasion. I thought this recipe sounded simple enough and figured the kids would love it because it's mac & cheese. This was totally killer - I loved the addition of the Italian seasoning flavor and we also used a little garlic sea salt and cracked peppercorn too.

What you need:
  • 1 box macaroni and cheese
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 (12 oz.) can tuna
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  1. Prepare the macaroni according to package directions (or at least the boiling the noodles part).
  2. Add cheese packet, peas, tuna, seasoning, cheddar cheese, and milk. Stir well.
  3. Bake in a small casserole dish at 350* for 10 minutes to warm through.
  4. Top with Parmesan and serve.

  1. I love tuna casserole, too. I haven't made it in a LONG time because I think I made one too many Tuna Helpers back in the day lol. This looks great!

  2. We make something similar when we need a quick lunch or dinner!

  3. I think my kids would love this! I will try it out on them this week :)
