Tuna Casserole

1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup onion (diced)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. frozen peas
1 (6-ounce) can tuna packed in water or oil (undrained)
1 cup buttered bread crumbs
8 ounces packaged wide noodles (cooked al dente)

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking dish with vegetable oil. In a pan on the stove, saute the onion in butter until it is soft. Add in the mushroom soup, milk and peas; bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve soup. When it is boiling, turn off the heat and fold in the tuna, gently with liquid. Add in the cooked noodles and toss to coat in sauce. Add to the baking dish and top with bread crumbs. Bake for 35-45 minutes until topping is lightly and browned and heated. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Tuna is such a good source of protein and their are a lot of different ways to incorporate in your diet. Try this casserole, tuna salad (*of course…), tuna by itself (*just sprinkle on a little salt and pepper and you have a pretty good snack;-), tuna with crackers and tuna sandwiches (*tuna melts are in this family…).
