Microwave Tuna Noodle Casserole

READY IN: 21mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

This is one surefire dish that gets my picky 2 year old to eat anything in the "protein" group; he always asks for more. It's easy, delicious and creamy. The french fried onions and cheese (I've always used shredded cheddar) are the key ingredient in this recipe.
