Made this for lunch today. What a delicious tasting tuna noodle casserole. I added a bit of diced onion, 1 cup of frozen peas, (thawed) and 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Baked this covered for 30 minutes, then topped the casserole with crushed potato chips, and baked it uncovered for about 8 minutes more. Can't wait to make this again, and I think I'll omit the onion, as I'm going to top the casserole with French Fried Onions, and instead of adding sharp cheddar cheese, I'm going to add shredded pepper-jack cheese, and of course the peas. Thanks for the recipe chelgilm, it's definitely a keeper!!
