Arielle's Favorite Tuna Casserole

Michelle Waco


This is a favorite in my household. My kids love it (named after my daughter although I have been making versions of it since my teens). Back then I would make Crescent rolls filled with cheese partially baked then set on top to finish into a filled roll "crust" as it baked. Now, I tend to just sprinkle with cheese and let it bake to save time and bake biscuits on the side. **Note- Sometimes I use 4 cans of tuna and reduce the cheese slightly - depends on our moods and how flaky I think the tuna is. This is the best et to get veggies down my kids some days...LOTS of cheese. LOL. I've added frozen corn when I was low on peas...and it was good. Can sort of play with what you have - and your personal tastes. This is just our basic recipe we typically make. NOT the best for low cal diets or non-cheese lovers....haha
