Are you looking for an easy seafood-based dinner? I highly recommend this tuna casserole from The Stay At Home Chef on Youtube! It has a cheesy top and a made-from-the-scratch sauce that you’ll never get over with. It’s also simple and easy to prepare, with ingredients probably in your kitchen already. Watch the video below to learn the full recipe.



  • 1 lb egg noodles
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 white onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 (6oz cans) solid white albacore tuna
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 – 3 tsp olive oil


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and lightly grease a 9 x 13 pan. Cook 12 oz of egg noodles according to package instructions. Meanwhile, put together the sauce. In another pan, melt 3 tbsp of butter over medium heat. Once it’s melted, add in half of a white diced onion. Saute it for about 5 minutes. When the onions are soft and translucent, go ahead and add 3 cloves of minced garlic along with 3 tbsp of all-purpose flour. Stir it all together. Next, pour 2 cups of chicken broth followed by 1 cup of milk. Stir it all well and bring it to a simmer and cook until it’s thickened and then remove it from the heat.

Step 2

Pour your cooked pasta into your greased 9 x 13 pan evenly. Back to the sauce, add 2 cans of solid white albacore tuna and 2 cups of frozen peas. Stir it in. Take the sauce and pour it directly over the egg noodles, then add 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Now, combine 1 cup of panko bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, and 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle the bread crumbs mixture all over the top of the casserole in a nice even layer. Place it in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until the top is golden brown.
