Quick and Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole Dish

For a classic comfort food dish, look no further than the tuna noodle casserole recipe from my soul food website. This simple yet delicious meal is made with pantry staples like canned tuna, egg noodles and creamy cheese sauce, plus whatever toppings you have on hand - from crunchy French fried onions to buttery Ritz crackers or tasty panko breadcrumbs for a bit of extra texture.

The first step in making this dish is to cook your egg noodles according to the package directions. Once they're done, drain and set aside. Then it's time to make the cheesy sauce by combining melted butter, flour and milk together in a medium-sized pot until it reaches a creamy consistency. Add shredded cheddar and Swiss cheese to the sauce along with your canned tuna and stir it all together until everything is combined.

The final step is to pour the cheesy tuna mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish before topping with your chosen topping – either French fried onions, Ritz crackers or panko breadcrumbs. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve warm with a side salad for added nutrition!
