STEP FOUR: After 20 minutes, remove the casserole from the oven and top with breadcrumbs and remaining ¼ cup mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and bake another 5-10 minutes, until bread crumbs had started to brown and the cheese is melted.

STORAGE

IN THE FREEZER: Make sure to cover any leftovers in foil before putting it into the freezer. Once frozen, you can transfer from the baking dish to a freezer-safe bag or container easily.

IN THE FRIDGE: This recipe will last a couple of days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. To reheat, place the tuna casserole into an oven-safe baking dish and heat at 350 for about 20 minutes, until it’s warm through again. Then it’s ready to slice and serve!

    Really good! I’ve always made this when my kids were little and never really enjoyed it. This was so much better than I remember 🙂 I didn’t use the breadcrumbs before, but now I will. I used broccoli instead of peas.
    My son really enjoyed it, I took a normal portion and when I went back for a little more, almost 1/3 was left lol He is 6’5″ though lol

    Made tonight & YUM! Didn’t have parsley, & added diced pimento like my mother used to, & a pinch of onion powder, too…turned out delicious, thanks 4 sharing!

    Wonderful mix of flavors; however, here’s my modifications:

    One can of cream of mushroom soup; instead of the second can, I substituted what I had on hand (a mix of French onion dip and sour cream). Totally AWESOME!. I will definitely make my version again!
