5-Ingredient Tuna Casserole

Author Jennifer Tammy


  • 2- ?oz cans tuna
  • 1- ?oz can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise or 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups uncooked pasta
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup flake cereal or breadcrumbs optional


  1. Boil 6 cups of water over high heat. Add pasta and peas, turn heat down to medium-high and stir occasionally to prevent sticking until el dente (approximately 8 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F.
  3. Open the cheddar cheese soup and mayonnaise, and combine in a large bowl. (Use milk as a substitute for the mayonnaise if you'd like a lighter meal.)
  4. Drain the pasta and peas, and then toss in the soup-mayonnaise sauce.
  5. Pour the contents of the bowl into a casserole dish. Top with breadcrumbs or flaked breakfast cereal if you'd like a crunchy topping.
  6. Bake for 20-40 minutes until the casserole reaches the texture you'd like. (If you'd like soft and cheesy, cook for less time; cook longer if you'd like a crunchy pasta topping and the texture to resemble what I've shown here.)
