    KissKiss's Note:

    My husband just named this the best tuna casserole he's ever had, so I'm recording it on Zaar for safe keeping. The base of this recipe is from the Fanny Farmer cookbook, but I changed nearly all of it. Cooking/prep times do not include time to cook noodles.

      Loved the texture and that it doesn't call for canned soup as the base. The only change is I added peas. This has replaced my usual tuna casserole recipe.
