Tuna Casserole with Dill and Potato Chips

Ingredients

1 stick plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided

12 ounces dried curly egg noodles

Kosher salt

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only, finely chopped

10 ounces mushrooms (such as crimini, shiitake, and/or button mushrooms), chopped

1 cup white wine

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

3 teaspoons finely chopped thyme

¼ cup all-purpose flour

2½ cups homemade chicken stock or low-sodium chicken broth

1 cup heavy cream

8 ounces white cheddar, grated

2 teaspoons hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)

2 6-ounce jars oil-packed tuna, drained, broken into small pieces

2 cups potato chips

1 lemon

½ cup dill, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

Directions

    STEP - 1

    Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 13x9" baking dish with 1 Tbsp. butter.

    STEP - 2

    Cook egg noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until very al dente, about 2 minutes. Drain pasta; let cool.

    STEP - 3

    Melt 4 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and leek; cook, stirring, until soft but not brown, 8–10 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add mushrooms. Cook, tossing occasionally, until most of the mushroom liquid has evaporated, 4–6 minutes. Add wine and reduce until skillet is almost dry, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in Worcestershire and thyme.

    STEP - 4

    Melt remaining 4 Tbsp. butter in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and cook until roux is golden and looks shiny and smooth, about 2 minutes. Whisking constantly, add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and add cream, cheddar, and hot sauce; cook, stirring, until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

    STEP - 5

    Gently fold mushroom mixture, cream mixture, noodles, and tuna in a large bowl; taste and adjust seasonings if needed.

    STEP - 6

    Transfer tuna mixture to prepared baking dish. Press chips into casserole so they stand upright. Bake casserole until bubbly around edges and chips begin to brown, 15–20 minutes. Zest one-quarter of the lemon over casserole. Let sit for 5 minutes, then top with dill and chives.
