The Lazy Man’s Tuna Noodle Casserole

This casserole is one of my favorite go-to recipes on a work night. It takes just a few minutes of prep time, and by the time I change in to sweats, pop open a bottle of red wine and turn on the TV it’s just about done.

Main ingredients

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp of chopped dried onion
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bag of extra wide noodles


  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs (depending on the size of the dish you’re putting it it, you can always use more. I usually eyeball it)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook noodles per the package. Mix tuna, mushroom soup, cheese, butter, onion and noodles together. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and slowly add milk.

For the toppings, brown your bread crumbs with the butter in a small pan on medium heat. (Be careful not to burn them! They don’t take long to brown.). Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the tuna mix and bake for 45 minutes.
