Ingredients

  • ½ (16 ounce) package yolk-free egg noodles (such as No Yolks®)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (16 ounce) package cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ cups peas
  • ½ medium yellow onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups grated white Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rapid boil. Cook egg noodles at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain.
  • While the egg noodles are cooking, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, peas, and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  • Sprinkle flour over the vegetables; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add milk and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Add drained egg noodles to the vegetable mixture, along with Cheddar cheese, tuna, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, parsley, dill, chives, and lemon juice; stir until well combined.
  • Combine remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan with panko and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle over the casserole.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and bubbly, 17 to 19 minutes.
