You will be blown away at the flavor of this incredible homemade tuna noodle casserole recipe using fresh ahi. This dish will instantly become a new family favorite once they try it.

Tuna casserole is a simple dish consisting of a creamy mushroom sauce, noodles, peas, and tuna that are combined and baked with a cheesy breadcrumb topping. It can be easily customized and in fact, can be taken from its original recipe to a modernized fresh version like this one.

According to, Tuna casserole is said to have been created in the state of Washington in the 1930s. There was a recipe in Sunset Magazine that featured a recipe called, “Noodles and Tuna Fish en Casserole.” It didn’t become popularized in America until the 1950s and has been on dinner tables ever since. However, I decided to take the early recipe to the next level.
