This awesome dish was created by me and might I add it was fantastic. So creamy and flavorful. I decided to add Swiss cheese to the white sauce, and am I ever glad I did. It went well with the tuna and added a delicious flavor to the sauce.

My son was my inspiration for this dish and he loves Swiss Cheese. I decided to also add some to the topping.

I love cooking in cast iron and it turned out fantastic & not a lot of dirty dishes and that's always an added bonus!

I do hope you try this casserole, I don't believe you will be disappointed.

Stir in noodles and simmer a few more minutes then remove from heat.

In a small bowl, mix the crumbs and cheese and sprinkle evenly over the tuna mixture.

Place in oven and bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until bubbly. If not brown, place under broiler for another couple minutes until golden.
