Cheesy Tuna Lasagna

Savory, Sweet and Satisfying: Cheesy Tuna Lasagna

I have never liked fish. Did not like it as a child and still do not like it as an adult. The only exception to that is canned tuna fish. I really enjoy canned tuna fish and always have. That is as long as it is in a dish or mixed with Miracle Whip, pickle relish and a bit of hot sauce.

Savory, Sweet and Satisfying: Cheesy Tuna Lasagna

This dish is nice twist on the traditional lasagna. It still has the cheeses and lasagna noodles but instead of spaghetti sauce it is a combination of tuna and cream of mushroom soup. A great lasagna when you want something a little different than the traditional one.

Cheesy Tuna Lasagna
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 ounces canned tuna, drained
1- 10 3/4 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
9 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
8 ounces mozzarella, sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large saucepan melt the butter and saute the onions until tender. Stir in the tuna, soup, milk, garlic powder, oregano and pepper until combined. Spread 3/4 cup into prepared pan.

Place 3 lasagna noodles on top. Spread 3/4 cup tuna mixture on top of noodles followed by 3/4 cup cottage cheese and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat the layers. Top with remaining noodles, tuna mixture and mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
