This classic Tuna Casserole recipe with noodles is the perfect balance of delicious tuna, veggies, and tender egg noodles cooked to perfection in a cheesy creamy sauce with a crispy bread crumb topping.


  • 3 1/2 cups egg noodles (cooked al dente)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion (small to medium size)
  • 3 stalks celery (diced)
  • 1 cup frozen peas (defrosted)
  • 6 oz can of tuna
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp parsley

Crumb Topping

  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley


  • First, preheat the oven to 400F. Combine your ingredients for the crispy topping in a small bowl and then set aside.
  • Next, in a skillet over medium heat, cook the onion and celery in the butter for about 5 minutes until tender and set aside.
  • Next, in a large bowl, combine the egg noodles, onion/celery mixture, peas, mushroom soup, milk, cheese, tuna, and parsley. Mix until thoroughly combined and then add the mixture into a casserole dish. Spread the topping over the entire dish. Bake for about 20-22 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling. Serve immediately.
