Confessions of a Non-Chef: Tuna Casserole

If you read my intro post, you may remember that I mentioned making a legendary Tuna Casserole.

Why legendary? Because I only get it a few times a year, and on one day in particular:  My Birthday!
Nathan really hates this casserole, and so do several of my siblings. So we spare them the horror of peas and tuna 364 days a year. But on my birthday, when I get to pick whatever I want for dinner, we have tuna casserole. I don't remember when I started picking this particular dish, but it's so much of a tradition that my mom still makes it for my family, even though we don't live near them.
I changed up my mom's original recipe by using cream of chicken soup rather than cream of mushroom. Mushrooms are not my thing.
This dish has everything I love:  peas, noodles, cheese, potato chips, and tuna fish.
Kiah makes it with fresh tuna (I'm a little jealous that they live near fresh fish!) and says it's ten million times better. Someday I'm going to have to try it, because I already think it's awesome.

Pin It!
