What Kind of Noodle Casserole Should We Make?
Hello everyone, and welcome back to Will It Casserole , a column where we see what dishes, dishes and cuisines can be reimagined and turned into casseroles.
It was nice to cook and eat last week’s lactose fever dream, but I want to tackle a more classic casserole category: noodle casserole. The noodle casserole genre counts many, but when I looked through the Will It Casserole archives , I couldn’t find a single one. This clearly needs to be fixed, but I need your help picking out which casserole to make (as I often do). Here are some ideas:
- Tuna noodle casserole: an icon of the genre. For the first time, it was made with kraft pasta, canned tuna and frozen peas. I liked it, but I feel like we can embellish it a bit.
- Chicken Spaghetti Casserole: This dish of cream noodles in beige, bell peppers and peppercorns is one of my favorite things my stepmother cooks, and I would love to cook it for you. (And tweak it a bit, because I need to tweak it.)
- Turkey tetrazzini: I’ve never had one, but it looks good (and simple).
- Chicken and Dumplings Casserole: Dumplings are not noodles, but I think we could change the genre a bit and come up with something special.
These are four very easy choices we could come up with, but I’d love to hear what your favorite noodle casserole is as I honestly didn’t grow up eating a lot of them. I suppose a kugel would fit this genre too, so if you have any suggestions for a kugel I’m open to them as well.
