  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, stir the tuna, condensed soup, peas with mushrooms and onions, onion, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly mixed. Gently stir in the cooked pasta, then pour the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with dry bread crumbs.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the casserole is bubbling and the bread crumbs are golden brown, about 20 minutes.

The flavor of this casserole was very good, but it was very dry. The only thing I did different was sautee the chopped onion in some butter first. The next time I make this, I will use less noodles. But, it was an easy weeknight dinner and with a little bit of tweaking, this could be a 5 star recipe!

The onions were undercooked. The dish had no flavor. Too many peas.

This was a great recipe! I followed most of the ingredients and directions but of course I made a few changes as well. I added fresh mushrooms, used only half an onion, an extra 1/2 cup of milk and then mixed the dry bread crumbs with 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese then sprinkled on top. Other reviews noted that it tasted bland so I added 1 tbs of Lowry Seasoning Salt, pinch of garlic powder, pinch of Italian seasoning and a dash of cayenne pepper. I also cooked it in the oven for longer for 30 mins instead of 20 so that the mushrooms and onions could cook all the way through. Besides that the family loved it! Definitely is a keeper :)

Easy and tasty! I like my casseroles pretty creamy so I used less noodles and a touch more milk. Also, I had no canned veggies, but was happy to saute onion and steam some carrots instead. Also, I used homemade garlic basil bread crumbs.

I felt the recipe needed something. Easy to make, but a little bland.

I changed a few things, I didn't have mushrooms to add so I just did peas and I sauteed onions in butter THEN added them. I also added a little cayenne pepper, parsley, garlic powder, to give it a zing. for the breadcrumbs I added parm cheese. I tried it before I put it in the oven :) it was tasty then so I hold high hopes for when its warm
