Golden Tuna Casserole

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.


4-6 servings

Mushrooms, green peppers and onion are added to boxed macaroni and cheese in this comforting take on the classic tuna bake. "It is a delicious, hearty and quick-to-fix dinner," writes Helen Suter from Golconda, Illinois. "I serve it with a tossed salad and hot rolls."


  • 1 package (7-1/4 ounces) macaroni and cheese mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tuna, drained
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained


  1. Set aside the cheese sauce packet. In a saucepan, cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, saute onion and green pepper in butter. Return macaroni to the pan. Add milk and contents of cheese sauce packet; stir until smooth. Stir in the soup, tuna, mushrooms and pimientos.
  3. Pour into a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
