Ingredients

4 ounces dried medium noodles
1 (10 ounce) package frozen whole or cut green beans
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 medium red or green sweet pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 (9 ounce) can tuna (water-pack), drained and broken into chunks

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. In a large skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, sweet pepper, onion, celery, and garlic. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender. Stir in flour, salt, mustard, and black pepper. Add LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk all at once; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in tuna, cooked noodles, and green beans.
  4. Spoon tuna mixture into a 1 1/2-quart au gratin dish or oval baking dish. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture atop casserole. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through and bread crumbs are golden.
