Creamy Noodle Casserole

Creamy Noodle Casserole

A tuna noodle casserole is a perfect dinner for a weeknight when the kids come home from school “starving.” They get one whiff of that warm, cheesy aroma and they are instantly soothed. In fact, just to guarantee that the kids will gobble it up, serve it with potato chips on the side, or crumble the chips on top. Who can pass up a meal that comes with chips?
