Tuna Noodle Casserole

I definitely want to bookmark this one for myself in addition to sharing it with you guys. Tuna noodle casserole - I used to eat this as a kid and it was basically just noodles, tuna, and cream of mushroom soup (weird stuff), with cornflakes or some such cereal on top. I guess I liked it back then, but it hasn't seemed appealing in years. Except the other day I found myself with extra cooked pasta, and tuna in the cupboard, so I looked up some recipes. I found some from scratch and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because it is really good! You make a roux, then add chicken broth and milk, and a tasty mushroom-onion mixture. Then as expected just dump it in with the pasta and bake it. The topping on this is cheese and breadcrumbs which was really good too. Oh and I added peas for some color. I'm proud of myself that I now make things like this from scratch! It wasn't super fast for me but it wasn't too hard, and casseroles always make a ton!

i would love this recipe since i'm living abroad now and cream of mushroom soup in a can is hard to find and winter is coming, but it seems that the link only goes to the pic. a copy-paste issue?

Oops, yes indeed, copy and paste gone wrong. Should be fixed now. Thanks for stopping by, Pange, let me know how the tuna noodle casserole works out for you! Where are you living?
