  • continued from above:

    Stir until heated through. When the noodles are cooked, drain them and put them back in the pot.

    Add the tuna mixture. Mix, and pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cheese on the casserole and top with the topping of your choice. Bake 10 to 15 more minutes. Serve with a green salad and corn bread.

    Note: Add more or less milk to make the sauce the desired consistency.


    This is seriously THE BEST tuna casserole EVER!!!!
