Can you freeze tuna casserole?
Yes! I often make this healthy tuna noodle casserole recipe and then freeze individual servings for my son to eat before work. I reheat the frozen tuna casserole by sticking it in the microwave for 2-3 minutes. Stir, then put it in again for 30 seconds at a time.
Can I make this healthy tuna casserole on the stove?
Absolutely you can! Boil the noodles and saute the veggies for 5 minutes or so in a different pot/pan. Add all of the ingredients together after the noodles are cooked and drained. I often make this tuna noodle casserole on the stove if we are running short on time!

Tuna Casserole Weight Watchers Counts:
1 1/2 cups of my homemade cream of mushroom soup is 3 Freestyle Smart Points. The only other thing in this recipe that you need to count under the new program guidelines is the pasta! The veggies, and the tuna are zero points foods. 16 oz of whole grain pasta is about 18 Freestyle Smart Points so you can adjust accordingly.
Healthy Tuna Casserole 21 Day Fix Container Counts:
On the Fix, this is a side dish–this recipe makes 8 servings, about 1/2 cup each.
For the entire recipe, the count is:
Soup: 1.5 tsp and 1/3G
For one serving: 1Y, negligible teaspoon, just over 1/8 G, and 1/4R. You could definitely bump up the red and greens by adding more veggies and tuna if you’d like.
Healthy Tuna Casserole for 2B Mindset:
Double the veggies and you’ve got a great 2B Mindset lunch! I’d personally double the tuna as well to get some more protein into my day.
