    PiceSeasGirl's Note:

    I learned this recipe in a Home Economics Class years ago. This is my favourite Tuna casserole that I have come across to date. I really like the cheesy biscuit topping that makes this so different.

      I love this recipe. It elevates tuna to a whole new level. My mom had it from somewhere so I grew up with it - except that she made the biscuits with Bisquik.
