This recipe was first published in full on the blog Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen. We are pleased to share it with you here for Weekday Supper.
- ¼ cup butter, divided
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 8 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Fresh grated nutmeg
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna in oil, drained and flaked
- ½ cup frozen peas, thawed
- ½ cup salt and vinegar potato chips, crushed
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a casserole dish with non stick spray.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and the noodles. Cook as package directs for al dente. Drain and return the noodles to the pot.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons butter. Once the butter is melted, add your shallot and garlic, cook until soft, about 5 mins. Raise the heat to medium-high and add your mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms begin to brown and release their liquid, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk for a couple of minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Gradually whisk in the milk and continue to cook about 5 minutes, until sauce has thickened. Add some freshly ground nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the tuna and peas. Pour into pot with the noodle. Stir to combine and pour into the prepared baking dish. Top with the crushed potato chips.
- Bake for 25 minutes, until lightly browned.
