    Charmed's Note:

    In response to a request. This is a nice, simple tasty tuna and spinach casserole, especially if you like lemon. If you choose to use sprinkle it with crispy chinese noodles, it gives it a nice crunch and flavor boost. I got this recipe from a book called New Casserole Cookery.
