Mueller's Tuna Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by NC Gal

I clipped this off a bag of egg noodles years ago. I panicked one time when I couldn't find the clipping and tore my cookbook cabinet apart. Looked on Zaar and couldn't find it. So I am putting it on here for safe keeping :) I don't always use the potato chips, but have also used "flavored" ones sometimes. Nothing fancy, just good old comfort food.

I was looking for this favorite recipe on the back of the noodle bag, too, and was glad to find it here. I love this recipe because of the cheesy flavor combined with the tuna.
