High-Protein Tuna Noodle Casserole

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This tuna casserole recipe is a high-protein version of the American classic. While it has more tuna and less starch than a traditional recipe, it's just as satisfying.

Makes 4-6 Portions of High-Protein Tuna Noodle Casserole

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 8 oz dry egg noodles
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cans tuna (6-oz), well drained
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed, drained
  • 4-oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  1. Cook the noodles in salted water, one minute less than the directions call for. Drain well, and add to a large mixing bowl. Add the milk, mushroom soup, salt, and pepper, tuna, peas and 3/4 of the cheese. Mix with a spatula to combine.

    Pour the mixture into a buttered 9 x 13 casserole dish, and top with the rest of the cheese. Mix the breadcrumbs and melted butter until combined and spread evenly over the casserole. Bake for 35 minutes, until bubbling and browned.

Easy and good Tuna & Noodle casserole, Member Georgia.Babydoll

This recipe makes a big batch. If you are cooking for 2 you could cut it in half and still have enough left over for another meal. Overall very good and does heat up nicely to make a good leftover meal. Thanks for sharing.
