Healthy Tuna Casserole
A healthy tuna noodle casserole lives and dies by what binds it. Rich, decadent casseroles can be made with butter and carbs and cream. Really good, and good for you, tuna noodle casseroles can be made with low fat cream of mushroom soup.

Tip: When you make this tuna dish (or another) try to use tuna in a pouch; the taste is far less metallic than what you get in a can.

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces whole wheat penne noodles
  • 2 cans low fat cream of mushroom soup
  • 8-ounces tuna
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 4 tablespoons bread crumbs or crumbled crackers

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a pot of well-salted water, boil the whole wheat pasta; cook it about 2 minutes less than the package suggests; drain.
  3. Mix the noodles, cream of mushroom soup, tuna and celery in a mixing bowl and pour into a baking dish; top with bread crumbs. Bake until the casserole is bubbly, about 20 minutes.
