Sandy D'amato's Tuna Noodle Casserole (Lighter)

Sandy D'amato's Tuna Noodle Casserole (Lighter) created by CoffeeB

For the Make it Lighter Game, I've lightened up WI Cheesehead's "Recipe #203659" By changing to low-fat or fat-free versions of the dairy products, omiting the olives and using baked chips for topping. This is now lighter and healthier.

    Takes some time to put together but it's worth it!! Really good. Lots of different flavors from "traditional" tuna noodle casseroles.

    Well, first off I will say this is the most extensive tuna noodle casserole dish I have ever made. Mine usually consist of only a few ingredients. This one took some time to come together, but it was worth it. Scrumptious taste combinations. Followed the recipe only omitting the veggie per family's request. Thanks for posting and glad I tagged for MarketTag 08'~
