    Very tasty! Liked this version with the alfredo sauce.

  2. Oh my. My mom was a picky eater and only made a handful of meals. Tuna noodle casserole is one of them. I liked it, but I have never once made it for my family. Completely forgotten it was even a meal, as a matter of fact.
    I may just have to try it.
    We always put our casserole over a piece of bread. Is that just my family, or do most people do that?

    OH, and congrats on the Tasty Tuesday link up!

  3. A million years ago, in junior high home economics class, we learned how to make tuna noodle casserole – the one with crushed potato chips on top. This recipe sounds like a great new variation on the theme. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
