I'm not a big fan of tuna noodle casserole in general but my parents wanted me to find a recipe for it that was close to what they used to make. I like this recipe because it sneaks veggies into the casserole. My mom made us omit the peas, which I think would have been very good in it. I enjoyed the celery in this recipe it added some crunch that normal tuna casseroles lack.

I tagged this for Bargain Basement tag game. I needed a Friday Lenten meal and had partial cans of cream of mushroom soup and peas, so chose this recipe. It was pretty good, but a little bland. Maybe I should've added a little more salt and pepper...
