Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup uncooked egg noodles
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cans flaked tuna, drained
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 3 tbs bread crumbs
  • 2 tbs butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a medium baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.
2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in the onion, celery, and garlic, and cook 5 minutes, until tender. Increase heat to medium-high, and mix in mushrooms. Continue to cook and stir 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
4. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan, and whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in milk, and continue cooking 5 minutes, until sauce is smooth and slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Stir in tuna, peas, mushroom mixture, and cooked noodles. Transfer to the baking dish.
6. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a small bowl, mix with bread crumbs, and sprinkle over the casserole. Top with cheese.
7. Bake 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until bubbly and lightly browned.
