Ducks 'n a Row: Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Delicious Tuna Noodle Casserole 

Are we returning to our childhood here? My husband just asked me to make Tuna Noodle Casserole for him - days after his Peach Cobbler request. His mom made tuna noodle casserole often when he was a child. My mom, not so much... though I know she did make it. We were more into homemade mac 'n cheese at my house.  Anyhow, he had a craving!
His request was certainly an easy one. I simply had to find a recipe. You never go wrong with Campbell's so I searched for the "classic" tuna noodle casserole recipe made with cream of mushroom soup.  Googled it and, moments later, it was found.

As I looked over the recipe,  I  knew that there wouldn't be enough tuna in it to satisfy him so I added a third can of tuna plus some cheddar cheese. Then, I increased the amount of bread crumbs for the topping (It called for 2 T....definitely not enough for us)

End result? It tasted great! I was actually surprised that I liked it but I really did. Try this for your family. If they enjoy tuna, or any kind of fish, they will love it.
