Tuna Casserole

Some years ago, I recall having tuna casserole for dinner at least twice a month.  My family and I always enjoyed it.  Now it’s hard for me to recall the last time that I prepared this little tasty dish.  I’ve never been fun of using cream of mushroom soup so this recipe was perfect for me.  I really would like for you to share your tuna casserole dish with us.  I know that there are many variations out there.  By the way, is it something that you prepare on a regular basis, or every now and then?
