Tuna Noodle Casserole Review

via Allrecipes

Here’s what an Allrecipes reviewer KPZ111 had to say about the recipe. She says her tweaks took it to a whole new level.

“I sprayed a baking dish with cooking spray instead of butter. Next, I doubled the recipe for 9 x 13 pan. I added 1 teaspoon each of thyme nutmeg and crushed red pepper and doubled the garlic. I minced up mushrooms (so kids wouldn’t know!)

Next, I put a splash of white wine in with the veggies as they sauteed. Peas were omitted from recipe as I don’t like them. Next, I 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 the 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″
