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

  • Add tuna, black ground pepper, salt, onion, green bell pepper, milk and soup to noodles; mix. Pour mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish and top with cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is a golden brown; serve.

Editor's Note:

The original can of tuna was 6 ounces and has since been reduced to 5 ounces due to manufacturer's change. Amounts of cream of chicken soup and milk may need to be slightly reduced.

This was quick and easy to make. I used canned chicken instead of tuna and a blend of cheddar cheese and mozzarella and it was excellent everyone loved it. It is very spicy but we love spicy food. If you don't like a lot of black pepper you should cut the amount in half. Read More

It was great but like the other review said it was spicy. I also added more cheese... but I really thought that the taste had too much going on. Read More

Very goos recipe I used half the pepper and added some garlic. I did not have green peppers so I just used a 1/2 cup of onions. I also mixed some cheese in with the tuna. I used half the liquid and the same the same amount of meat and it came out Delicious and rich:-) Read More

My husband's favorite meal is tuna casserole (I don't like it) so he tried this and gave it 3 stars. I cut back on the salt and pepper (because 1 tbsp. seemed like a lot) and he still commented that it was too spicy. My son tried it and then had leftovers from the other night. With the exception of cutting back on the salt/pepper I made the recipe as printed. I will go back to using my regular recipe for tuna casserole. Read More

Yummy! I used a bit too much pepper and replaced the green peppers with peas. Good switch. Read More
