Tuna Noodle Casserole Reviews

Here’s what an Allrecipes reviewer KPZ111 had to say about the recipe. She says that her adjustments took it to a whole other level. This is what she did -:

I sprayed baking dish with cooking spray instead of butter. Double recipe for 9 x 13 pan. Added 1 tsp each of thyme nutmeg and crushed red pepper. Doubled garlic. Minced mushrooms (so kids wouldn’t know!)

Put a splash of white wine in with the veggies as they sauteed. I omitted peas (don’t like them). Added 1/4 cup of parmesan, 1/4 package of cream cheese and halved the cheddar cheese in the sauce. I added 1/2 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes.

I topped with remaining cheese then topped with corn flakes instead of bread crumb mixture. It was to die for! We loved it from ages 3 to 31″
