“My family used to complain when I made tuna casserole,” remarks Jean Centers of Crittenden, Kentucky. “So one day, I added shredded mozzarella cheese to the dish, and they loved it! Now, that’s the only way I make it.”
Mushrooms, green peppers and onion are added to boxed macaroni and cheese in this comforting take on the classic tuna bake. "It is a delicious, hearty and quick-to-fix dinner," writes Helen Suter from Golconda, Illinois. "I serve it with a tossed salad and hot rolls."
"After a busy day of bookkeeping for our family contracting business, I count on this rapid recipe my mother passed along to me," relates Nancy Adams of Hancock, New Hampshire. "I double it if I need to feed unexpected guests who stop by at mealtime."
My mom made this tuna casserole through the years...a delicious family dish, but good for any occasion. I often serve it for a luncheon along with garlic bread and a salad. It's quick and easy to prepare, freezes well and makes a complete meal.
