Broccoli Cheddar Tuna Noodle Casserole

February 27, 2015
My version of the classic tuna noodle casserole with boxed mac & cheese as a shortcut - such a fun twist on this family favorite!





Ok, full disclosure here: I'm the only one in my family that liked this dinner. But can I let you in on a little secret?

They're weird.

Ha! Paul only likes tuna in sandwiches, any time I've ever made it in a casserole he's not interested. I have to hand it to the boys though, they both tried this dinner and both said they would have liked it better without the tuna in the dish. :/

Oh well, more for me!





If you are a fan of the classic tuna noodle casserole, you will LOVE this shortcut version! Actually, it was created out of a silly mistake - I accidentally bought Cream of Broccoli soup instead of Cream of Mushroom soup. Considering my obsession with the broccoli cheddar combo, I just went with it and I'm SO glad I did - the flavor is perfect!

I will say though, with all the cheese and cream soup, it is a bit heavy. I would definitely serve this along side some roasted vegetables or a salad with a lighter vinaigrette. A perfect dinner for me!
