Italian Tuna Casserole – Gluten Free Recipe

Posted on

This updated Italian Tuna Casserole is not that same old elbow macaroni and cream of whatever soup version you grew with. This baked pasta dish has taken a trip to Italy and come home with a whole new flavor profile. It starts off with penne pasta in place of the elbows or soggy noodles. A lower fat cheesy sauce now replaces the condensed soup. I’ve added artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and spinach to the mix before baking this casserole to a golden perfection. Everyone is sure to love this lighter version of a classic comfort food.

    Thanks, I’m sure it would be just fine without? the artichokes. My daughter wasn’t too thrilled about the artichokes either.

    This looks really yummy..Just wondering, if I were to skip the artichokes, would I also lose most of the flavor in this dish…? Unfortunately,? my son doesn’t like artichokes..:(

    I love baked artichokes too. Actually the stuffed ones are my favorites. I haven’t made a batch since going gluten free. ? I gotta make them soon.

    Hey Angie, you could use regular milk in place of the evaporated variety, I was just trying to use up some stuff on? the pantry shelves for this one. You could also add different veggies or cheeses or whatever you have around the kitchen that seems like it might go together. I’m like you, I try to use up what I have around rather than shopping for specific ingredients.

    I’ve never used Evaporated Milk before and this sounds super interesting! ? This would be nice bc I’ve been eating the same thing for days now. Need now 😉

    Never had artichokes in a tuna? casserole but this looks really good! Artichokes I think go good with anything rich and creamy hot or cold! I like the baked version best!

    Thanks for your kind words. I wish I’d have known sooner that I had a gluten problem.? I believe I could have avoided many of my health issues if only I’d have known a few decades ago.

  15. EZGlutenFree

    Thanks. This is a nice quick dish to? throw together with pantry ingredients.
