Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. While pasta is cooking, in a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon butter until melted. Add carrots, celery, and onion. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir vegetables into pasta.
  3. In the pan used for vegetables, melt remaining butter. Whisk in flour until smooth. Slowly whisk in milk, about 1/4 cup at a time. Stir until smooth and thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir into pasta mixture. Stir in tuna, peas, and mustard.
  4. Pour pasta mixture into a casserole dish. Top with parmesan and panko. Bake at 350 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Instant Pot®

Recipe Notes

NOTE 1:  There are whole grain egg noodles available on the market but they can be difficult to find.  If you can find them, this dish will be a bit more like the original.  However, even we used spirals when testing because the store only had enriched egg noodles.

NOTE 2:  If you can't find whole wheat panko, just put 2 pieces of whole grain bread in the food processor and pulse until it's like bread crumbs.
