Tuna and Mushroom Noodle Casserole

September 8, 2010

My children never really liked casseroles too much but I always did manage to sneak in a tuna casserole a few times a year.  Adding some extra treats (mushrooms, onions, celery and pimentos) seemed to do the trick to enhance the plain flavor of a typical casserole.  As a child I remember people putting potato chips crunched up on the top but I have stayed with the family tradition of Parmesan cheese for the topping.

 Tuna Noodle Casserole with Mixed Vegetables

This was a great idea as we try to add more vegetables to our diet.  Add a package of frozen mixed vegetables to the sauce before the noodles.
