    I skimmed this early this morning and kept coming back to it in my mind for some reason. First, is this casserole supposed to have pasta in it? Maybe not. Second, one hour and 40 minutes to essentially cook cabbage?? Really seems off but again I could be wrong. Couldn't this whole thing be done on the stove top in way less time?
    It doesn't have pasta. It's a moderate calorie, high volume meal. It could also be split into 4 or 6 servings for a side dish. You could add pasta but that would, of course, change the Nutrition Facts for the recipe.

    You could certainly do it in a pot on the stove but I like the browning that occurs with baking.

    Can this be made in a crock pot?

    Give it a shot. This is just a "toss things together and see how they turn out" recipe that I enjoyed.

    If it were me with these exact ingredients, I'd cook the cabbage and soup together and then add the tuna when you're ready to eat since, IMO, this tuna doesn't stand up well to much heat.

    I don’t understand cooking the coleslaw on water for an hour then adding the soup. Just mix it all together and cook.

    I got more brown bits in the final product that way, even with it covered for that first hour. The water on the bottom of the pan helped mitigate the brown bits sticking.

    This was just an experiment and I liked the outcome. Someone asked for the recipe in a different MFP thread and so I posted it here.

    Sounds good to me, but, I don’t like cream of mushroom soup or warm tuna (bad childhood memories tuna casserole) so I think I’ll sub with chicken pouch’s and cream of celery soup. I like the browning bits idea. And the sauce. Pork may be good also. Thanks OP.

    Bought ingredients yesterday. Gonna make double cabbage and soup, but then half it, put tuna on half, ham in half, just to try it. Thought of chicken soup with chicken and maybe some dill seasoning. Maybe cream of onion soup? Didn’t think of celery soup, but sounds good. Just sounds like a recipe I would use again and again, changing it up according to what I have on hand and what I am hungry for.

    In the oven for the third time tonight. First time, made it just like you did.
    Second time, no soup, used ham.
    Tonight, no soup. Still trying to decide, Turkey hot dogs all cut up, or precooked turkey sausage patties?

    This is basically the same as the tuna crunch casserole recipe. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/tuna-crunch-casserole/
