I love heavy, creamy, buttery casseroles – I really do, but the older I get, the more I realize how all the extra calories are affecting my body… This Lighter Tuna Casserole is a nice twist on an American classic and makes for a great family meal. Serve baked, with just an hour of combined cook and prep time, or just serve tossed in about 40 minutes.
A casserole is a great go-to if you want something for a simple and fairly quick family meal that yields plenty of leftovers. Mother often made a batch of tuna casserole for those hectic midweek school nights. I enjoyed it then and still make it for myself often. When I came across this lightened recipe, I was eager to try it to see how it compared to the original, and I was very satisfied with the results.
