Nana's Tuna Casserole Surprise

Doug Smethers 0

"This is one of those little gems of ingenuity from my Nana's kitchen. Nana always made this every Thanksgiving, and all of us kids took turns helping her make it. It is a simple dish, but it really hits the spot on a cold November day. I remember how my sister was absolutely shocked when she learned there was tuna in this dish. This is definitely a dish you'll want to make again and again."

I made lots of adjustments to this, and I liked it, but I still think it lacks seasoning - pepper at the very least - maybe garlic and paprika would have helped too. I used green onions, no oli...

Well... I think this recipe is VERY interesting and quite tasty. As for the amounts used.. I measured carefully and ended up with enough ingredients to fill an 8x8" casserole, which was the bes...

Wow, hats off to Nana!! I made this tonight and had to restrain myself from having a third helping. It's sooo good. Only change in the recipe was that I had no flake cereal so I used leftover C...

I used canned salmon and noodles instead of cereal and added a bit of milk and it was a hit!
