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.

"Easy enough to make. I did add a little garlic powder and used seasoned salt instead of table salt because it looked like it could be bland with just salt and pepper. I also mixed the corn flake crumbs with a tbsp of melted butter."

"I have made a similar tuna noodle casserole but topped it with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese instead of the crushed cornflakes. Either way it is good."
