Thank you so very much for this wonderful recipe. I never thought of making a roux.

Made as directed, until I mixed the noodles w/ the sauce, tuna, and veggies. WAY too dry for my tastes. I appreciated the fact that this recipe for one of my favorite comfort foods skipped the can o' mushroom soup, but I ended up having to add some sour creme for moisture. Also added 1/2 tsp celery seed for more flavor depth. Right track, wrong sauce to noodle ratio.

This is a great base recipe. I add a few extra seasonings to suit my family's tastes. Sautéing the vegetables in butter makes a big difference. I used to use EVOO, but the butter mellows the vegetable flavors. A few notes: (1) 1 slice of bread ~ 5-6 tbsp bread crumbs. If you're making your own breadcrumbs, you may need to add an extra 1-2 tbsp butter for the topping. (2) Read the package directions for cooking the egg noodles and shave one minute off the cooking time. As the video says, the noodles will continue cooking in the oven. (3) Rinse the noodles with cool water after draining. This will stop the cooking and remove excess starch. (4) If you are a slow chopper, then it might be a god idea to prep the veggies in advance, otherwise, save time by chopping while the pasta is cooking

the consistency of the roux is not as critical as the ratio of milk to flour. You can adjust that to suit your tastes.

I like to add a bit of thyme to this recipe to give it a fuller flavor.

My husband loves rice, so have made it for years with cooked brown rice. It's a favorite.

I think the roux looked too thick and would make the casserole too dry - especially after it had cooled a bit and gets thicker.

The roux looked too thick to me - I think the casserole would be too dry.
