Tuna Casserole

45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
My mom made this often for us while I was growing up; now I make it for my family. Everyone loves it (even my fussy toddler), even those who don't usually like tuna casserole. I've made it so many times, I have the recipe memorized. Sometimes I dress it up a little by using albacore instead of regular light tuna and substituting Parmesan (not the canned kind) for the cheddar. The leftovers reheat well, too (if there are any--I usually have to make a double batch just to be sure there is some left!). It is a very forgiving recipe too; if you add more noodles or more tuna or some more veggies, it'll still be fine.
