We all know how delicious a classic tuna noodle casserole can be, but more often than not, that humble dish can be more nostalgic than impressive on the family dinner table. This dreamy recipe for tuna alfredo casserole is a wonderfully simple adaptation of this classic recipe, calling for tender rotini pasta and creamy alfredo sauce, spiced to perfection with paprika, garlic powder, oregano and parsley, all topped off with a brilliant crust of golden breadcrumbs.
One of the best things about this casserole is that it can be ready and on the table in only 35 minutes, which we all know is the holy grail of busy weeknight meals. Needless to say, this recipe is a knockout with kids and adults alike, and it's perfect for preparing earlier in the week for some fantastic leftovers for lunch. If it's to your taste, you can also opt to sprinkle on a cup of grated cheddar cheese before placing your casserole into the oven.
Pro tip: Feel free to play around with the type of pasta in this recipe; bow tie pasta, ziti and fettuccine can work just as well as the rotini.
