Dear Abby's Tuna Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Laura O.

Different than ALL of the other tuna casseroles out there. An extreme favorite of mine from childhood. You are supposed to use fresh or frozen green peas, but I use canned. You are supposed to use 2% milk, but I use whole. Half the time I make it without the crispy topping.
