My wife and I made a tuna noodle casserole in a crock pot casserole and when it was done per the instructions the egg noodles had completely dissolved. What did we do wrong?

What size were the noodles? It should state it on the bag. I use the extra wide egg noodles as they hold up fairly well. The thinner noodles tend to come apart if cooked too long. BB
Without knowing what recipe you used, I'm guessing that the noodles were over-cooked before assembling the casserole.
Noodles were uncooked.
I'm not a big fan of crock pots so keep that in mind. It seems that some recipes are a sort of "dump" recipe where they tell you to put in everything at once and you end with a bunch of overcooked food. It might turn out better if you slow cook everything but the noodles & add them at the end.
I agree! When making soup pasta or noodles only go in right before serving. I cook the pasta, drain it, and then place a serving in a bowl and pour soup over them. If refrigerating soup, pasta gets stored in a separate container. They will get mushy if stored together. BB
Thanks everyone. I believe you are correct. The "Crock Pot" recipe called for it all to be put in the casserole together. This from the results is obviously wrong. If we do this one again we will do the noodles separately.
