I made this a few months ago. My in-laws liked it so much that they've requested for me to make it again. My dh and I like spicy/vinegary foods so we ate it with a few dashes of Tabasco.

My dh thought this was the best tuna noodle casserole he had ever eaten. I like it too, but not quite as much. It didn't turn out quite as flavorful as I was expecting with the sherry.
