Tuna Mushroom Casserole Recipe

Tuna Mushroom Casserole Recipe

I love to serve this dressed-up version of a tuna casserole. The green beans add nice texture, color and flavor. The first time I made this dish, my uncle asked for seconds even though tuna casseroles are not usually his favorite. -Jone Furlong, Santa Rosa, California
