Apple Tuna Pasta Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Top Review by *Parsley*

The combination of flavors really works well in this casserole! I cut the butter down to 4 tbsp and sauteed some chopped scallion to add some flavor to the cheese sauce. Instead of processed cheese, I used sharp cheddar. After baking, the apples were soft, but still had a slight crunch. I think some fresh parsley or tarragon would be a terrific addition to this. I will certainly make this again. Thanx for sharing!
