Tuna Casserole

Sandra Ann Marie Harvey


My mom used to make this when I was growing up. She passed it down to me and I have been making it for many years. My husband and kids love how cheesy and cream it is.

Serve tuna casserole for dinner and you'll have one happy family. This recipe is very good and surprisingly quick to make. An easy weeknight meal when you don't have time for a complicated dinner. We loved the addition of cheese to this recipe. The filling is creamy and cheese on top just adds another layer of creamy goodness to the dish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
