My husband is a huge fan of casseroles. It doesn’t matter the type or ingredients included…just give him a big casserole with a bowl and a spoon and he’s a happy guy. I will admit that it took me a while to embrace the whole casserole concept. I mean I don’t flip out if my foods touch on the plate or anything…but I do prefer to eat foods separately.
Because of the simplicity and convenience that a casserole offers, I have changed my tune slightly. There are a couple of casseroles that I have come to love over the years. One of my favorites is a tuna noodle casserole. It’s easy and crazy inexpensive.
In our early years of marriage when finances were VERY lean, this was a meal that I made almost weekly. I’d make the casserole for just a few bucks and we could eat off of it over several days. All these many years later, it’s still a dish that I make on a fairly regular basis.
It’s a hearty meal that’s super simple to make and is packed with great flavor…winning combo in my book.
Pick up a bag of Light ‘n Fluffy® egg noodles and couple of cans of tuna when you shop this week and you are on your way to a tasty meal with very little effort. You don’t need many ingredients or a lot of time for a great casserole that your whole family will love.
