  1. Better homes, better gardens, but not better tuna bake! 🙂

  2. My kinda casserole

  3. Hi Tarrant, Thank you for the comments! I just had a look at the Spaghetti Galantine recipe from July ’06 – merciful heavens, that is the most awful jello recipe I have ever seen! And i love the name of the macaroni company that thought of it – Fatti & Moni! You just can’t make this sort of stuff up can you?

    What a wonderful site you have got, I am looking forward to going through your archives.

  4. Ooooh, another Tuna Casserole recipe! *JoY*

    I’m thinking more along the lines of a parmesan/panko topping though. That probably won’t freeze very well. Will make a Sunday dinner of it then.

  5. This was super yummy! (With a few changes) 😉

    I hope you haven’t stopped posting to this blog, as I thoroughly enjoy it! 🙂

  6. You can never have enough good casserole recipes…especially comfy ones like tuna noodle.
