Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole pan with Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed).
step 2
In a large pot, bring water to a boil, add a generous pinch of salt and cook the Fusilli Pasta (1 lb) according to package instructions, about 10-12 minutes or until al dente. Drain the noodles, and return them to the pot.
step 3
Stir in the Canned Tuna in Water (1 cup), Cream of Mushroom Soup (2 cans), Milk (1/2 cup), Shredded Triple Cheddar Cheese Blend (1 cup), 1/2 tsp of Lemon (1), Salt (1/2 tsp), and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp). Mix to combine, and be careful not to break the tuna too much.
step 4
In a small mixing bowl, combine the Breadcrumbs (3/4 cup) and Butter (2 Tbsp). Spread the noodle mixture into the prepared casserole pan in an even layer. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the noodles.
step 5
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the top starts to brown.
step 6
Once done, take it out of the oven and let it set for 5 minutes.
step 7
Sprinkle Fresh Parsley (1 Tbsp) over the top of the casserole just before serving.
