Tuna Tetrazzini

I've had this recipe for what seems like eons. After the first time I tried it, I knew it would be in frequent rotation. It's good, cheap, quick and easy. Many nights I don't mind experimenting or cooking something that takes time, but sometimes, you just want good comfort food, and fast. I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make this, and it never disappoints!

First, combine the butter, water and milk in a large skillet and heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Then add the noodles,

stirring to coat them all with the liquid. Then stir in the peas.

Bring this mixture to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 6-8 minutes or until noodles are tender. Then stir in the soup, mushrooms,


and parmesan cheese,

stirring well after adding each ingredient.

Continue to cook just until it is heated through.

  1. This looks delicious. Unfortunately out of six of us only two people in my family will eat tuna. :(

  2. Now that is a great Good Friday meal:)

  3. This looks fabulous, I love tuna.

  4. I've got Stephanie's problem (see above comment). But this looks like a great way to get people to try it!

    Thanks for the recipe--and thanks for joining Food on Fridays this week!

  5. This IS a great Lenten Friday meal! I've only ever seen chicken tetrazzini, never tuna. Looks delicious and easy, too! Great combo.

    Thanks for sharing @ FOF!

  6. Perfect for Foodie Friday! My mom used to make this with potato chips on top--it was THE recipe for 60s luncheons (and with chicken, too) and bridal showers, and it holds a warm place in my foodie memories. Plus, it's delicious and will not break the bank.Hope you have a great weekend!
