Old Fashioned Tuna Noodle Casserole
Canned tuna is always a good standby, anytime really, and definitely during Lent. We eat it most often in its most basic forms, straight out of the can over white bread slathered with mayonnaise, or on a melt, in tuna and egg salad, tuna mac, or even a slightly more fancy tuna pasta salad.
And then, of course, there's this classic tuna noodle casserole to stretch it out into a full out meal. Since it's just me and The Cajun, I'm making it in a smaller 2-quart size here, which amounts to about 4 full adult servings with other sides, but double it up for a 9 x 13 inch dish if you've got a bigger family to feed.
