Creamy Tuna Noodle Casserole

Last Monday night we were craving some classic comfort food so what's better to make than a hot, gooey, creamy casserole?  Absolutely nothing, so out of the pantry and into the oven went this tuna noodle hot mess of goodness.  This casserole is probably one of the yummiest, cheapest meals ever because it makes a ton.  With this recipe, the two of us can easily have dinner one night and lunch for the rest of the week...yay!   Have a great weekend and happy cooking!  Recipe adapted from here.
