Step 1: You will need
- 1 casserole dish
Step 2: Sauté Mushrooms And Onions
Fill the bottom of a large, hot pot with canola oil and add 4 cups (260 g) sliced mushrooms; sauté for 5 minutes. Allow the mushrooms to sit and change color. Salt and pepper to taste and stir. When the mushrooms have softened, add 1/2 diced onion and stir until soft.
Step 3: Great Mushroom Soup
Add 1 cup (240 ml) chicken stock to the sautéing mushrooms and onions. Continue by adding 4 cups (1 L) cream and 1/2 cup (90 g) Parmesan cheese to the pot. Bring to a boil then down to a simmer for 10-20 minutes.
Step 4: Time For Tuna
With the mushroom soup simmering, add 1 lb (450 g) egg noodles, cooked al dente (slightly undercooked). Next, add 12 oz (400 g) tuna, in oil. Finally, add 2 cups (300 g) peas and incorporate. Stir and incorporate all ingredients completely and bring back up to a simmer. Add a squeeze of lemon juice if desired. Pour the entire contents evenly into an oven-safe casserole dish and bake at 350F (180C/Gas Mark #4) for 15-20 minutes.
Step 5: Serve
Allow the tuna casserole to cool slightly before serving. Serve generously in a bowl and enjoy!
