Today on The Stay At Home Chef
I’m showing you how to make
Tuna Casserole
Tuna casserole is an American classic
and let me tell you this tuna casserole is the best!
It’s made from scratch and
it is super tasty
You might even be able to win over all of the tuna haters
To start you’ll need to pre-heat your oven
to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly
grease a 9 by 13 pan
Then we’re gonna head on over to the stove cook
12 ounces of egg noodles according to the package directions
That should take somewhere around 7 minutes
Meanwhile we’re gonna go ahead
and put together a sauce
In another saucepan melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
Once the butter has melted we’re gonna add in half of a white diced onion
Get that in there and
we’re gonna let that saute for about 5
minutes
Once the onions are soft and translucent we’ll add in
3 cloves of minced garlic
Get that in there along with
3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
Stir this all together
The flour is going to be our thickening agent for this
Then you’re gonna pour in 2 cups of chicken broth
along with 1 cup of milk
Stir this all together
Bring this to a simmer and cook it until it’s thickened
and then remove it from the heat
Pour your cooked pasta into your prepared 9 by 13 pan
Then we’re gonna take that sauce and add in
two cans of solid white albacore tuna
This is the best tuna to work with
It tastes better and it’s a
lot less fishy so you definitely want to
use this when making a tuna casserole.
Get that all in there with all those
delicious chunks of tuna
and then you’ll also add in 2 cups of frozen peas
Stir it in
Then we’re gonna take this sauce
and pour it directly over our pasta
Just pour it real quick right over the top of
the pasta and then you’re also
gonna add in 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Stir this right in the pan
Last we’re gonna make a breadcrumb
mixture to sprinkle over the top
You’ll need one cup of panko bread crumbs
and you’re gonna toss the panko with
1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
and
3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
You’ll end up with a nice crumbly mixture
and that’s exactly what we’re looking for
Next take this just sprinkle it over the top in a nice even layer
Bake this inthe preheated 400 degree oven
for about 20 to 25 minutes until the top is golden brown
and then you’re ready to eat!
