Arielle's Favorite Tuna Casserole

Arielle's Favorite Tuna Casserole created by Andi Longmeadow Farm

This is one of my family's favorite quick work night meals - I used to make this as a teen for my folks and have continued with my family. My kids (and hubby) request this one!! Fun ways to change it up are to bake crescent rolls in a ball/roll filled with cheese on top of the casserole (I like to start them out first so the bottoms cook a bit first), or top the casserole with fried onions, crushed potato chips (a great use for those old chips in the cupboard), etc. I modify the amounts depending on what I have in the pantry - but it is always great!!!

    I made this without topping and think it would be better with a crumb topping of some sort. Otherwise, a good filling tuna casserole.

    I found this recipe when I didn't have milk to use for any of the more popular recipes. It was great! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to make the Cream of Mushroom soup first according to the directions on the can, so I ended up splitting the difference and adding about half the amount of water that would normally be used the make the soup. It was just about right. I plan to use this recipe again next time I make tuna casserole. It was very easy too.

    I decided to try this recipee in hopes that my taste buds had matured over the years. My husband wasn't too thrilled about my dinner choice either. It was pretty good for tuna casserole but I don't think we will ever be fans of the dish. Still, if someone was every looking for a tuna casserole recipe I would point them in this direction.

    Good basic recipe. This was a bit dry but I will add a little milk next time and that should fix it up :) Thanks!
