Simple, easy and delicious easy tuna noodle recipe. Ready in under 20 minutes!


  • 1 cup Barilla Miniature Penne
  • 1 can tuna
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt


  1. Combine all the ingredients except the thyme and Italian cheese blend.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat.
  3. Put a lid on the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Be sure to stir the mixture several times.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Add the thyme and cheese. Stir to combine.
  6. Return the mixture to the heat and cook for 5 minutes. If the mixture is too thick to suit you, add a little extra cream during this time.
  7. Serve hot.


Tip: For those who like their tuna noodle casserole creamier, add a little extra cream to the recipe. This version does get quite thick once you add the cheese.
