Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Boil water in a large stockpot. Into the rapidly boiling water, cook the egg noodles for exactly 6 minutes. Rinse briefly in cold water to cool, and drain thoroughly.
Place into a large bowl, along with cream of mushroom soup, cheese, peas, tuna, and mushrooms. Mix gently but thoroughly.
(Optional) with a vegetable-oil dampened paper towel, lightly oil a casserole dish to prevent later sticking.
Bake casserole, covered, in 350-degree oven for 45-55 minutes. (Optionally, top with seasoned breadcrumbs and cook another 10 minutes uncovered.)
