Homemade Tuna Casserole

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 30 mins

There are lots of tuna casserole recipes on this site, but this one seems to be a bit different. It uses a homemade basic white sauce instead of canned soup, and also incorporates hardboiled eggs, which adds a nice dimension to the flavor. My friend shared this recipe with me, and I think the extra effort is worth it!

Very basic, but very good, too! While I certainly like more spiced-up recipes, this was still quite nice. Great comfort food.;)

Very good! I used 3 cups uncooked noodles by mistake (lol) and ended up having to remake the sauce. Other than my mistake of putting uncooked noodles in the casserole, it went very smoothly preparing.:)
