Tuna noodle casserole typically does not fall under the gourmet category. It may not be fancy but it is some seriously good comfort food.
A few weeks ago after church my boyfriend and I were going to swing by the grocery store to pick up something for lunch. It was a cold and rainy day, which is the perfect setup for comfort food and movies. I asked him what sounded good and gave him a rundown of possible menu options and he chose pasta. So for the rest of the ride to the store I came up with a tuna noodle casserole recipe in my head.
Friends…. This is good eats. It was the perfect thing to enjoy on a rainy day (which there have been WAY too many of recently in Chicago) and it was really cheap! The sauce is a simple white sauce that is enhanced with Dijon mustard, sour cream, and two kinds of cheese. No canned soups here! I swapped out the traditional potato chip topping for Ritz crackers since I had them on hand.
Plan on lots of leftovers! I sent some home with my boyfriend who ended up eating it for the next four out of five meals. I think it is safe to say he liked it.
