Ingredients

  • 12 ounces egg noodles

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • ½ white onion, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons flour

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly grease a 9x13 pan. Cook the egg noodles according to the package directions. Drain and add pasta to prepared pan.

  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add in onion and sauté 5-7 minutes, until softened. Stir in garlic and flour and cook one minute. Slowly pour in chicken broth and milk and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. 

  3. Once mixture has thickened, stir in peas and tuna. Pour over pasta in the 9x13 pan. Add in cheddar cheese and toss to coat.
