Tuna Casserole

Connie Deitz


I found this recipe in an old box from my roommate's closet. She told me that it had won first place in a baking contest way back in the late 1970's. I cooked it up and was amazed at how good it tasted. I wasn't a real big fan of tuna casseroles before I ate this. I have shared it with many family and friends. They all love it and asked for the recipe. So now I am sharing it with everyone here on Just a Pinch. I hope you enjoy it as much as I, and my loved ones, do.
