Easy Tuna Casserole

One of the most comforting meals that I remember from my childhood is the Tuna Casserole my mom used to make. It was always a treat when she would prepare it because she only made it on special occasions or when we had guests over. I remember one time when our neighbors came over for dinner, and my mom decided to make the Tuna Casserole. They loved it so much that they asked for the recipe and started making it for their family too! It’s funny how food has the power to bring people together and create lasting memories. I have tweaked the recipe a little bit to make it my own, and I am excited to share it with all of you today.
