I really don’t understand why tuna casserole gets such a bad rep. It’s the classic example of taking really simple ingredients and turning them into something that is absolutely magical. Warm, bubbly, delicious, and all those aromas that are just pure comfort no matter how you slice it. I confess to even wanting this dish so badly sometimes when I’ve been out of ingredients that I’ve been very lenient with my substitutions. Broken up lasagna noodles and yes I admit, even chopped up string cheese for the top when I didn’t even have a crumb to spare. Might not be as magical then, but still pretty good – and that’s hard to do when you’re talking about cooking with string cheese! This one’s the real deal though, and exactly how it was meant to be!
