I love an old fashioned tuna casserole for dinner.

  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 1 cup of green beans or peas
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • my own white sauce with grated cheese and mushrooms added
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/12 to 2 cups gluten free pasta
  • 1/12 to 2 cups of shredded cheese

I make my own white sauce to replace creamed soups in casseroles.

  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • about 1 cup gluten free breadcrumbs

Mix bread crumbs with melted butter for a topping.

Another option is to add about 1 cup of crushed potato chips to the top. My mom always made it this way and to me this makes it an old fashioned meal.

I like to serve my tuna casserole with plain salad greens sprinkled with parmesan cheese. You can add whatever type of dressing your prefer. This time I also added a serving of chick peas.

As I’m the only one that likes tuna casserole I always freeze portions of it for a later time.

How about a delicious, warm tuna melt sandwich?

    Tuna casserole looks good but I am not a tuna lover and Dana isn’t either. crushed chips sound like a good topping for a change.
    Mild and now, -2c only going up to +2c

      I’m the only one that likes tuna casserole, so I always make it and freeze portions just for me. Yet hubby loves tuna sandwiches. Mild here too, but we are getting wet snow that won’t accumulate.

    I love a good classic tuna casserole. My mom used to use potato chips too, or sometimes those jackstraw potato chips.

    Thanks for sharing with Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen this week.
