Tuna Noodle

Choosing the right pasta is easier than you think. Don't get overwhelmed when you go into the grocery store to buy pasta. The difference you will notice in a tuna noodle casserole will only be slight, but you might have to do a little experimenting to find the past that goes best with any recipe.

Here are a few things to look for:

  • Look for pasta made from 100% durum wheat. If you are buying Italian pasta, it might say 'di grano duro' Pasta made with durum wheat will hold its shape and flavor better when you cook it.
  • Look for pasta that is made in Italy. There are a lot of great foods right here in the USA, and our pasta is just fine, but Italian pasta is just a bit better, and they are more likely to use better wheat.
  • Egg pasta may be a little better choice for tuna noodle casserole, but plain pasta could be used if it is your preference.
  • Good quality dried pasta from a package will be better than low quality fresh pasta. With pasta, fresh is not always better.

Choose good pasta for your meal!

The noodle has a flavor all its own. If you don't have good noodles, you won't have a good casserole. Keep this in mind when buying your posts.

Don't overcook the noodles. Soggy noodles are gross noodles. Don't overcook.

Mixing pastas can be fun as well, but if you mix your noodles, be sure that they get cooked equally, which is not necessarily the same amount of time.
