Aunt Bees Famous Tuna Noodle Casserole

"You only need 10 minutes of prep for Aunt Bee's Famous Tuna Noodle Casserole, an easy dinner that's so good it's truly unforgettable! In a recent letter, Aunt Bee mailed me her yellowed, stained recipe card for Tuna Noodle Casserole, along with a quick story about the dish. This Tuna Noodle Casserole made her quite famous among the other military wives! It’s the dish that Aunt Bee gave to other army families when (in her words), “there had been a mishap.” It’s the way that Aunt Bee showed love and support, and it’s the meal that she made to comfort her friends and family. In recent years, Aunt Bee’s daughter-in-law, Joan, ran into someone who had received one of Aunt Bee’s Tuna Noodle Casseroles after one of those tragic mishaps many, many years ago. That person told Joan that she had NEVER FORGOTTEN about Bee’s kindness and the dinner that nourished her during a very difficult time."

I have to admit, tuna casserole was not one of the first recipes I planned on making when I started browsing recipes - I was always looking for new and interesting things to make. But I tried this one last week since I had everything needed to make it. I was pleasantly surprised! It tastes just like the one that my mom made as a child - one of the few things she cooked that I really enjoyed. It definitely brought back a lot of memories!

I haven't eaten tuna casserole in years. My husband likes tuna, but not tuna casserole. I will have to make this and maybe he will try it. My mom used to make this when I was a kid, but she added crushed potato chips on the top before baking. I don't know what it was about those chips, but it was delicious.

Tuna casserole is pretty easy on the budget, tasty, and nutritious too. What I consider the "good tuna" is yellow fin tuna. It costs a little more, but it is worth it. The recipe contains more tuna than I am used to in a tuna noodle casserole so the tuna flavor is really the star instead of all the flovors jumbled together.
