This has become a new FAVORITE of mine. My husband always made me Tuna Casserole, but now on Low Carb those Noodles are a No No. This recipe saved the day and now I make the Tuna Casserole and He loves mine 🙂 Easy Peasy guys you’ll love it!
What you will need
2 Cans of Tuna
2 Cans french Style Green Beans
2 Cups Shredded Cheese (I used Cheddar)
1 Cup chopped fresh mushrooms
1/2 Cup Celery
1/3 Cup finely chopped onion ( I used purple that s what I had on hand)
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
2 Tablespoons Butter
Salt and Pepper
PreHeat oven to 350 degree.
First let’s go ahead and chop our Onion,Celery and Mushrooms and get our Cheese shredded.
Next, Grap your Med. size pan and turn burner to Med. high and melt your Butter. Then add your Chopped ingredients, Not the Cheese just yet, that’s Last.
Saute until slightly browning. Then add Chicken Broth and Reduce to half.
While that reduces, Drain Tuna really well, and Drain Green Beans Really Really well. Try t get all moister out of Green Beans, this step is important , because when your casserole starts to cook in oven it can become watery. Then Toss green Beans with alittle seasoning Salt and Pepper.
Check on reduced mixer, when reduced add Heavy cream and salt and pepper, bring to a boil and reduce heat and stir until thickened.
When stove top mixture Thickens add Tuna, Stir well. But Green Beans in Casserole, and add Tuna mixture to Green Beans.
Green Beans take the place of the Noodles,its really good! I actually like it better than the noodles 🙂 Incorporate mixture into Green Beans. and Then top with Cheese.
Place in preheated 350 degree oven.
Cook for about 20 min. until cheese is nice and bubbly.
Let cool for 5 minutes, then dig in and ENJOY!
