Instant Pot Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Hello blog friends.  I hope you are all staying nice and warm even though Spring will be here in two weeks.  When the weather is cold I like making comforting meals for dinner.

One of the ways I can make a quick meal is with the Instant Pot.  I love using the IP for making a lot of weeknight meals.

I have made this dish, Tuna Noodle Casserole in the Instant Pot so many times.  You can see in the photo below, it's still in the pot and just made.

I just added in 4 cups of fresh spinach leaves instead of peas.

You can make this dish with peas, spinach, or any veggies that you like.  I wanted to change things up a bit and use spinach instead of the peas.

I hope you'll enjoy and try out this delicious and easy recipe for IP Tuna Noodle Casserole.
