Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain noodles and return to the pot. Pour olive oil and salt over the drained noodles; stir.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Put processed cheese food cubes into a large, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth, 3 to 5 minutes; pour over noodles and add tuna, peas, celery soup, mushroom soup, and black pepper. Stir to coat noodles completely; pour into a large casserole dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top of the noodle mixture to cover completely.

  • Bake in preheated oven until Parmesan cheese just begins to brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

I normally will make recipes as instructed but in this instance I am not a fan of velveeta cheese so I swapped that out for regular cheddar cheese. Read More

This recipe was delicious. The only reason I gave it a 4 rather than a 5 is because I added about 1/2 cup milk before I baked it because it seemed too thick. Other than that, the taste was delightful! Read More

I accidentally left out 1 can of cream of celery. I used 16 oz of noodles. I had no parm used cheddar instead. I have to say it was a sooo salty. I will use no salt added peas and omit the salt. Under all that salt it was pretty good! Read More
