Tuna and macaroni, quite possibly the most iconic and ridiculed casserole, finds its redemption here. An innovative sauce transforms tinned tuna, making the dish suave enough for company.
1 pound elbow macaroni
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 can (2 ounces) anchovies packed in olive oil (about 10 fillets), drained
1 1/2 cans (14 ounces each) artichoke hearts in water, drained (about 11 hearts)
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
3 cans (6 ounces each) water-packed chunk light tuna, drained, 2/3 cup water reserved
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for dish
1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
Tuna, Artichoke and Noodle Casserole Recipe at
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil an 8- to 10-cup souffle or casserole dish. Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water until barely al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain, and rinse with cold water.

Puree onion, anchovies, artichoke hearts, and capers in a food processor until smooth. Add Parmesan and reserved tuna water, and pulse to combine. With machine running, slowly add 1/2 cup oil, and process until emulsified. Season with pepper. Transfer to a large bowl, and stir in drained tuna, lemon zest, parsley, and pasta. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour pasta mixture into prepared dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top, and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Cover with parchment then foil, and bake until heated through, 40 to 45 minutes. Uncover, and cook until breadcrumbs are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Finally Decided to Try This--Very Good!
I was intrigued with this unusual tuna-noodle recipe, so finally decided to be brave and give it a try. Only thing I substituted was dry parsley vs. fresh. Turned out really tasty, very 'tuna' flavor. Only drawback was I thought it was a bit dry, but I threw in a bit more macaroni than called for. When I try it again, I think I'll increase the sauce (or reduce the macaroni), and I'll add some chopped (not pureed) artichoke hearts (the other half can) and more cheese.
