Tuna Noodle Dish

Recommended Posts

Guest raidermom

This is a JoAnna Lund recipe from her slowcooker cookbook titled "A Potful of Recipes". This is a comfort dish for me, I love it! I leave out the pimento and after the dish if finished, I put 2 points worth of crushed WoW chips on top and broil for a couple of minutes. (Old habits die hard ;) )

 

TUNA NOODLE DISH

 

2 6oz cans albacore tuna

1 3/4 cups uncooked noodles (I use No Yolks)

1 cup (one 4oz can) sliced mushrooms, drained

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 (10 3/4oz) can Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup

1/4 cup hot water

1/4 cup (one 2oz jar) chopped pimento, undrained

1 cup (one 8oz can) peas, rinsed and drained

1 tsp. dried parsley flakes

 

Spray a slow cooker container with butter-flavored cooking spray. In prepared container, combine tuna, uncooked noodles, mushrooms, and onion. Stir in mushroom soup, water, undrained pimento, peas, and parsley flakes. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours. Mix well before serving.

 

Servings - 6 (2/3 cup)

Points per serving - 3

I love tuna casserole, but my family hates it...I wonder how well it would freeze. I can't believe this is only 3 pts per serving. I'm going to have to try it.

Hi, I would love to make this, however, DH can't stand anything with even a hint of "peas". For anyone who has already made this, any ideas on what I could substitute for the peas, if anything?

 

Thanks in advance,

Dawna

Dawna - Coming from a person who adds EXTRA peas, I can't imagine it without! But if I close my eyes and try reeeeeeeeeeally hard, I imagine myself just doubling the mushrooms. I love those even more than the peas.....

 

HTH

 

Love,

Thanks Cheryl, I think the mushrooms will work out too. We all love mushrooms. Don't know why I didn't think of that.

 

BTW, both DS & I LOVE peas, so I will probably add some to each of our dishes.

 

Hugs,

Dawna

Believe it or not, I have made tuna noodle casserole and used green beans. I usually chop them up so they are smaller pieces and toss them in. My family loves it this way. thumbup.gif

This looks yummy. I think I will try it this week, but I will have to cook it in the oven. Any ideas of what to do different? I will cook it covered, but should I cook the noodles first?

I usually don't cover mine, so that the top can get all crispy (I do the same with baked ziti, and my poor suffering DH can't understand why I want crunchy noodles...).

 

I do cook the noodles first, but you should probably not cook them all the way through - cook them until they have a minute or two to go, and they'll soften the rest of the way in the oven.

Thanks Calgal, I read your response after I cooked it, but I didn't cook the noodles all the way.

 

This was very good!!! DH and I loved it. I used Ms. Dash instead of parsley. I think next time I will add 1/2 cup of ff sourcream to it.

 

Thanks raidermom!!!

Hi Cheryl,

 

I am making the tuna casserole in my crockpot today and when I look in it seems very dry, not enough liquid. Should the tuna be drained or undrained?

 

Please let me know.

 

Thanks,

Calgal - when I want to make this quickly, I also cook it in the oven without a lid and precooking the noodles. But I add more liquid to it when I do....otherwise too dry. I roughly use around 3/4 of a soup can of skim milk.

 

Tyannah - I haven't had a problem with it being dry in the crockpot. Are you cooking it at the lowest setting? If you are and it still appears dry, try adding some skim milk, that should do the trick! And the tuna should be drained. ;)

Raidermom,

 

Thanks. When I seen it looked pretty dry I added some water. Next time I will add some milk. Overall, it was very good. Thanks for the recipe. thumbup.gif
