  • 4 cups whole wheat noodles cooked, macaroni was used in this recipe, egg noodles also will work
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion small, diced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced, white or button (wipe clean)
  • 9 ounces solid white albacore tuna cans, in water, shredded (add tuna and water)
  • 1 cup green peas frozen
  • 8 ounces cream cheese low-fat, softened
  • 1 cup milk low-fat
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese reduced-fat, shredded (recommend block cheese)


  • Preheat over to 375 degrees.
  • Note: If desired, add additional cheese to the top of the casserole before baking.
  • Cook noodles according to instructions on the package or al dente.
  • In a medium skillet add oil and sauté onions and mushrooms over medium-low heat until mushrooms begin to release moisture, about 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine sautéed onions and mushrooms and all remaining ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup cheddar cheese for the top.
  • Add the tuna mixture to a 3 quart casserole dish or 9" baking pan, top with the 1/2 cup of remaining cheddar cheese. Bake 15 minutes covered and 10 minutes uncovered, or until cheese is hot and bubbly.
