Mom's Crockpot Tuna Casserole

Alicia .


This is one of my favorite meals that my mom would set to cook in the Crockpot before we left for church Sunday morning. By the time we got back the house smelled so good and we couldn't wait to dive in!

I've made a few of my own little adjustments, mostly just adding a few more veggies, but it is still just as yummy!

Also if you aren't a fan of tuna, you can substitute with canned chicken or turkey.
