I figured out that there are 277 calories, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
Because I have issues with the texture of some foods, I omitted the mushrooms from my ingredients. Tuna Noodle Casserole is a comfort food for me, because my Mom made it when we were kids. This recipe is a little “souped up” because my Mom never added sherry or red pepper, but it truly satisfied my yearning for it. I have already eaten this recipe several times, because it is so low in calories! I LOVE IT!
Here are the ingredients that I used in this recipe.
First, I melted the butter in a large skillet.
I then, cooked the onions until they were transparent.
Now, add the flour and stir it in
The milk will help thicken the sauce
In went the sherry
I then added the tuna
Red bell pepper and parsley went in the pan next.
The noodles were ready to go. Ree wanted wide
egg noodles, but I like the regular ones better.
In the pans it went
I used an 8x8 and a loaf pan,
because I halved the recipe.
Before cooking, I sprinkled on the breadcrumbs
The final product ready to eat.
