Friends, let’s be honest.
There is nothing, NOTHING, like a casserole. It’s comfort food at its finest. On a cold, dreary, winter day, your mood can be instantly elevated by the magical healing properties of a casserole. Nom.
And this tuna casserole is the ultimate rich, creamy concoction that you need. Right now. In your belly.
The problem with traditional casseroles is that they often come from a can. Cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup… these are all used as the base for your average casserole. Not this bad boy! It’s made with 100% real, whole, unprocessed ingredients. And while it isn’t the most healthful meal in the world, I did make a few modifications to lighten it up a bit:
- I used 1/2 the amount of butter for which a similar casserole calls
- I replaced half of the milk with chicken stock. Veggie stock can be used as well.
- I used whole wheat pasta instead of traditional egg noodles
