    Catherine Robson's Note:

    I found this recipe in the 1991 edition of the Australian Women's Weekly. It has been a family favourite ever since. A very good recipe to fall back on to if you forget to defrost some meat for dinner.

      I haven't had a GOOD tuna casserole in ages so tend to avoid them. This one definitely changed that! The recipe goes into my keeper file as it was a hit with all diners. I wasn't sure of what constituted "tasty" cheese so used pepper jack. thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.
