Mediterranean Tuna Bake

I always used to love the tuna noodle casseroles my mom would make when I lived at home..ages ago! I was craving something similar to that last week, but wanted to stay away from the condensed cream of celery soup. I contemplated a southwestern version, but wasn’t entirely sold on that going well with tuna. Then I saw Feta in the fridge and olives in the pantry, and Mediterranean Tuna Bake was born.

Mediterranean Tuna Bake

Ingredients

  • 2 5 ox cans of tuna in water
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat Feta crumbles
  • 3 cups whole wheat pasta shells
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 one red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 one green pepper, diced
  • 1 3 oz can sliced black olives
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle of Parmesan

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bring a large kettle of water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add all ingredients minus Parmesan to a large bowl and mix together thoroughly. Add Parmesan to top.
  4. Pour into 9 x 9 baking pan sprayed with non stick spray.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, until top is slightly browned.

This turned out more of a bake than a casserole, since I think casseroles are generally a little more creamy. You could easily make it creamier with more Greek yogurt and almond milk, but you might also want to add more seasoning!
