    PSU Lioness's Note:

    This is definitely not your grandmother's tuna casserole. Rotini pasta, tomatoes, spinach and a rich, cheesy white sauce update this classic, and prove irresistible. You can also bake this in individual ramekins and freeze so it can be reheated for a quick, personal meal. Recipe is from Disney's Family Fun website.
