Tuna Noodle Casserole Reviews

Here’s what an Allrecipes reviewer KPZ111 had to say about the recipe -:

“5 stars with these adjustments: Spray baking dish with cooking spray instead of butter. Double recipe for 9 x 13 pan. Added 1tsp each of thyme nutmeg and crushed red pepper. Doubled garlic. Minced mushrooms (So the kids wouldn’t know!!) Put a splash of white wine in with the veggies as they sauteed. Omitted peas (don’t like them). Added 1/4 cup of parmesan ,1/4 package of cream cheese and half the cheddar cheese to the sauce. Added 1/2cup of quartered cherry tomatoes. 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”
