Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole

Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole

This dish is a slow cooked version of classic tuna noodle casserole. Using cream of celery soup is a great shortcut to get a creamy casserole without having to create a sauce from scratch, and the toasted almonds give this meal a great crunch.


Do not overcook, cook just until noodles are tender.

My first impression of this recipe is -- IT IS NOT COMPLETE??? If the noodles are pre-cooked - they will already be Tender??? After cooking again in the slow cooker - they will be mush - right???

i have cooked tuna noodle casserole many times in the oven with noodles uncooked, just add anough liquid to allow for the absorbtion of the uncooked noodles, macaroni etc...toss it all into the cooker and let it go....

I still do not understand, noodles supposed to go in uncooked, or cooked?

The recipe includes cooked egg noodles. The note is referencing the preparation process for this recipe. Our recipes are reader submitted, and occasionally the wording of the recipes can be a bit confusing. Hope this helps.

I would like to know if questions are ever answered. This recipe is an example of not explaining fully, but I have never seen an answer yet.

What are the answers to the above 2 questions? Thanks.

I was wondering the same thing. Do we have to cut the cooking time in half? That's what I will do, since everything is cooked already.

The recipe ingredients say to use cooked egg noodles, and then it says at the end of the recipe not to overcook... cook just until noodles are tender... are they supposed to go in UNCOOKED?? Please clear this up, thanks.
