basic Tuna Casserole Recipe

I put this off for a long time; but I felt I really should have a Basic Tuna Casserole Recipe on my blog. This is a very simple recipe with very little added seasoning. The chips on the top help give it a little crunch. If you’re looking for something quick, and simple, and that is also very inexpensive, give this a try. Usually when I make this type of recipe I’ll skip the oven- just mix all of the ingredients together except for the chips and it has gone over pretty well; but if you like the cheese melted and the crunch of the chips on top give this Basic Tuna Casserole Recipe a try.
