StoveTop Tuna Noodle Casserole | Dairy + Gluten Free |

8:48 AM


I love our little tiny old house. It's cute, perfectly sized, and is starting to hold a lot of memories for me, my husband, and pup.
However, the summertime is brutal in our house. It's small so it heats up with every run of the stove. I've found stove top meals don't heat the house up as fast so those are my "go-to's" in the summer.

My husband loves a good Tuna Casserole and I've made them quite a few times, trying to tinker with a recipe that still gave off that nice cheesy taste but without the cheese.

StoveTop Tuna Noodle Casserole | Dairy + Gluten Free |
A quick, healthy alternative to the classic Tuna Casserole
  • 16oz Gluten Free Noodles* (any kind)
  • 1 and 1/2 cup Frozen Peas
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons Dairy Free Butter
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • 2 and 1/2 cups Almond Milk**
  • 1 teaspoon Sale
  • to taste Ground Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Cup Dairy Free Cheddar Cheese**
  • 2 6oz Canned Tuna
  • 3 Tablespoon Parsley
  • 1/4 cup Dairy Free Parmesan
In a decent sized pot, bring water to a boil and cook noodles according to box directions. When the noodles are just about done, add frozen peas. Drain and set aside.While the noodles are cooking, add the butter and cook until melted. Stir in the flour and whisk for 2 minutes. Continue to whisk and slowly and gradually pour in the almond milk. Stir until smooth and bring to a simmer. Keep whisking while you do this as to not let the flour mixture stick to the bottom and burn. Cook for a minute or two until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat, stir in the salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Gradually blend in the cheddar until melted, and then stir in the drained tuna and the parsley.Add the noodles to the cheese mixture and mix. Add Parmesan cheese on top if desired.

*I used Ancient Harvest Noodles but you can use any pasta
**If dairy ISN'T a problem, just put regular milk and cheese in place of the dairy free
UPDATE 2.20.18 - I made this again last week an realized that 8oz of pasta is not enough for the amount of cheese mixture, so feel free to add up to 16oz of gluten free pasta! StoveTop Tuna Noodle Casserole - #glutenfree and #dairyfree
