To begin making Sweet Chili Thai Tuna Casserole I prepared some gluten free pasta according to package directions but cut the time down by a couple of minutes.

I used Tinkyada Penne but you can use whatever you prefer.

While the pasta was cooking I prepared the vegetables. I cut up some grape tomatoes, yellow pepper, red pepper, a head of broccoli and I julienned some carrots.

Once the pasta was cooked I strained and rinsed it.

Then I retuned it to the pot it had cooked in over med/low heat.

I quickly stirred in some Sweet Chili Thai Sauce and flaked light tuna.

After those ingredients were stirred in I added the vegetables I had prepared earlier.

Once the vegetables were incorporated I added some Miracle Whip.

I put the lid on the pot and let the vegetables heat up for 5 minutes while I stirred it occasionally.

Serve Sweet Chili Thai Tuna Casserole immediately.

This loaded pasta dish can be enjoyed on its own or you can serve it with bread or a side salad.  It is hearty enough to be a full meal on its own!

Sweet Chili Thai Tuna Casserole is an easy stove top recipe that provides mouthful after mouthful of delightful texture and flavour.

For those that like a bit more heat, have some Sweet Chili Thai Sauce available to add to their serving.  

Some members of my family don’t like too much spice so I didn’t want to overdo it when originally preparing the recipe.
