30 Minute Dinners | Tuna Casserole

Growing up my mom always used to make tuna casserole and when I stumbled on this similar but much easier recipe, I knew I had to give it a whirl.

12 oz. egg noodles
13 oz. bag of frozen sweet peas
12 oz. can of tuna in water (drained)
1 small yellow onion, chopped
10 slices of Muenster Cheese
10 oz. can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 cup chicken broth
Ground black pepper to taste
Cooking Spray or butter for the casserole dish

1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

What To Do:
Boil the egg noodles for 7-8 minutes and drain
Return noodles to the pot and add the sweet peas so they can defrost and chopped onions to get softened.
Put the pot back on the stove on low and add the cheese slices, drained tuna, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth and black pepper to taste. Stir until the cheese is melted and everything is well blended together.

Set the oven to preheat fro 350 degrees.
Grease the baking dish with cooking spray or butter and then add the contents from the pot. 
Top with shredded cheese and bread crumbs,

Bake for 15 minutes.

Let the casserole cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
