Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch



Tuna Noodle Casserole From Scratch. It’s the easy, comfort food recipe that you need this weekend. This simple recipe is filled with hearty vegetables, creamy savory sauce and protein rich Bumble Bee Albacore Tuna.


Ingredients

Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna

Macaroni or cavatappi noodles

Olive oil

Celery stalks

Yellow onion

Carrots

Unsalted butter

All-purpose flour

Chicken broth

Milk

Garlic powder

Spinach leaves

Frozen peas

Crackers

Salt & pepper

Shredded cheese, like cheddar or Havarti


Directions

Preheat your oven to 375 F and grease a 2-quart casserole dish

In a large skillet cook up your celery, onion, and carrots until tender.

In the same skillet make the savory, creamy sauce. Whisk together the butter and flour. Then add in the chicken broth and milk. Season the sauce with garlic powder, salt, and pepper and set aside.

In a large bowl toss together cooked noodles, carrot-celery-onion mixture, sauce, spinach leaves, frozen peas and drained can of Bumble Bee® tuna. I love using Bumble Bee® Albacore tuna because ounce for ounce tuna is lower in calories, fat, sat fat, and cholesterol than even the leanest cuts of beef and chicken. I don’t know about you but I need all the extra healthy points after spending so much time at home these days!

Transfer to the prepared casserole dish.

Mix up the buttery cracker topping and top evenly onto the casserole with shredded cheese.

Bake the casserole for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly!


A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
