  • 1 Large Mixing Bowl
  • 1 9" x 13" Casserole Dish


  • 1 12 oz. pkg Wide Egg Noodles
  • 2 10.5 oz. cans Cream of Mushroom Soup - undiluted
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese - shredded, divided
  • 2 5 oz. cans Chunk Lite Tuna (in water) - drained
  • 1 cup Frozen Whole Kernal Corn
  • ½ sm. can Sliced Mushrooms
  • ½ sm. Onion - chopped fine
  • Salt & Pepper - To Taste
  • 1 cup French Fried Crispy Onions - See note


  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rapid boil. Add Egg Noodles and cook until soft, 9 to 10 minutes. Drain
  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Mix Noodles, Soup, half of the Cheese, Tuna, Corn, Mushrooms, and chopped Onion in a large bowl until well combined. Add Salt/Pepper to taste and then transfer into a 9" x 13" baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Cheese on top of the mixture.
  • Bake until cheese is bubbly, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After Baking, sprinkle French Fried Crispy Onions on top.

While Peas are the traditional addition, I prefer Frozen Whole Kernal Corn as listed in the ingredients.
French Fried Crispy Onions are available pre-cooked at your local grocer’s.
