Cheesy Tuna Casserole

It's one of those dishes that everyone seems to have a different version for. I came up with my own when the kids were little and I was running late for dinner. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand that the recipe called for, so I improvised.



2 cans of tuna, drained
1 green onion, sliced
8 oz. pasta (I used Cellentani, but feel free to use your favorite)
8 oz. heavy cream
1 envelope brown gravy
1 to 2 cups of shredded cheese
dried parsley

Cook the pasta according to package directions, drain.

In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, green onion, cream, gravy and half of the cheese. Mix well and then add the pasta to the mixture and stir everything together.


Pour into a baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese, bake in a 375 degree oven until bubbly and the cheese is melted.

  3. Sounds yummy.. I don't have any cream on hand.. wonder if something in place of it would work.. like cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup. I will try that, Probably tonight for dinner! Easy and fun! Thanks!
