Tuna Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Southern Lady

I improved on my mom's basic recipe we ate when I was child and it's now in our monthly rotation cookbook. My husband always goes back for seconds. Freezes well, too. (I didn't find a duplicate posting)

What I liked about this recipe was the broth and milk to thin the soup; and sauteing the onion and garlic before putting the casserole together. What I would do next time would be to decrease or eliminate the soy sauce. I did use fresh mushrooms and sauted them in with the onions and garlic. And I used a canned 'mushroom soup with roasted garlic' - I think I would have preferred plain mushroom soup. A fun alternative I have used for the cheese and chips on top are cheddar fish crackers.
