This is so delicious. I added fresh rosemary to give it an adult flavor. I didn't serve the tuna OVER the noodles. Instead, I gently combined the tuna WITH the noodles and heated it through. This is an awesome tuna casserole. I made this when PK posted it in a recipe forum as a request. I'm glad it's posted here where I can find it easily.
