Tuna, Noodle, and Cheese Casserole

This is a little fancier than the average tuna noodle casserole. I found it in a cookbook I checked out from the library about 10 years ago. Unfortunately, I can't remember the title or author and I have been unable to find the book again.

This was awful tasting. Not sure if this recipe was tasted before posting or not.Too much seasoning I am afraid.

Normally we like spicy food, but this we did not care for at all. Seasoning was overwhelming...sorry.
