I worked with DairyPure Milk on this post — and I loved it! The sponsorship on this Tuna Noodle Casserole recipe allowed me to share one of my family’s favorites with you! And, it doesn’t hurt that we LOVE their milk!
Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole Recipe (Kids LOVE This!)
I’m back with an all new recipe! I have been so excited to share this tuna casserole recipe and have been meaning to for quite some time… BUT it’s hard because this is a dinner that is on the menu for those nights where I’m pinched for time, but need something that my husband can take the next day for lunch and something that I wont have to fight the kids to eat — yes, they LOVE my Tuna Noodle Casserole! Can you believe it? I suppose I would have loved this tuna bake when I was a kid if my mom would have made it this way too, right? Ha!
The other nice thing about this easy tuna casserole dinner is that I can make it all, leave to run one of the kids to a practice, or shoot hoops for a minute while it’s baking and when it’s done, it’s d.o.n.e. Because, since it’s a one dish dinner, it’s easy to serve because everything is already in it. See why this is a favorite quick dinner idea?
Here’s how you whip this one dish tuna and noodles casserole up:
First make your Macaroni & Cheese as directed on the package. This is likely why kids love this dinner. But, with the addition of Tuna, my heart skips a beat because I love that the kids are getting some fish in their diets… so we go with it – and it’s a nice, updated twist on an old classic.
Pour your prepared Macaroni into a 2.5-qt to 3 quart dish. You’re going to need some room to stir. 🙂
Add a can of Creamed Soup to the Macaroni & Cheese. I like to use Cream of Celery in my Tuna Noodle Casserole – YUM!
Add 1 cup of DairyPure Milk. On a side note, I LOVE this milk! Can I just say that DairyPure is the only milk backed by an exclusive Five-Point Purity Promise? Our son will only drink hormone-free milk (he can taste the difference!) And, he’ll drink this milk because DairyPure milk contains no artificial growth hormones, is tested for antibiotics, is continually quality tested to ensure purity, only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped from your trusted dairy. One more thing, it comes in whole, 2% reduced fat, 1% low fat and skim/fat free milks. You can read up on DairyPure milk and all of these facts here.
Stir this all up pretty well. Add your tuna last and set it in without stirring too much. I like to still have some chunks of tuna in the casserole and if you stir it too much it will get too … mushy?
Finally, top the casserole with some regular potato chips. Honestly, I usually save the crumbs from a bag and that way just the little pieces that no one really eats anyways are used up.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes and serve in bowls – and enjoy!
