I LOVE tuna noodle casserole! I would prefer to make it with peas but a couple of my family members would refuse to eat it if they knew it has peas in it. This weekend I decided I was going to make it without them. Instead of using peas I used the French’s Crispy Fried Onions instead. It came out delicious so I thought I would share my Tuna Noodle Casserole Without Peas Recipe…
For my tuna noodle casserole recipe without peas recipe I used both cream of mushroom and cream of chicken because I like my casseroles to have lots of flavor! You could also try some of the other creamy type soups like the cream of brocolli soup if you want to experiment in the kitchen.
I also used two different kinds of cheese because I like my casseroles to be cheesy! I bought a mixture of Colby Jack and Monterey Jack Cheese that worked perfect for this dish! I used a cup of cheese but you could choose to use more or less depending on how much you like cheese. 🙂

Looks tasty, but the recipe does not instruct to put CHEESE in. I’ve had a similar dish before, just needed a refresher. Im sure it will be Delicious.

It is scrumptious, I added the cheese into the casserole before baking. I served it with peas as a side, because we like them. I have made this several times and it’s my favorite tuna recipe.
This was AMAZING! I absolutely loved it. I didn’t know when to put the cheese either so I did it in the last give minutes. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much. 💝💝💝

Where does cheese go? In mixture or on top??
Mary Sandra Magee-Evans says
What size can of tuna do we use. It just says 2 cans.
Thank you so much!
When do you add the cheese? Also, what sized soup cans?

Where and when do you put the cheese in? It doesn’t say at all.
