We have always thought of tuna casseroles – any casserole – as challenging to make. Yes, a cook can’t go wrong putting a jumble of ingredients into a casserole dish. But casseroles do require some planning and time.
And food writer Ellen Brown and Melissa Gray of North Country Public Radio prove our point with “Tuna Noodle Casserole, A Hot Dish in Need of an Update, Gets One.”
Check out the list of ingredients: egg noodles, dried porcini mushrooms, stock, butter, onion, celery, whole milk, sherry, fresh thyme, mozzarella, canned tuna, peas and potato chips. That’s a lot of ingredients!
And now you busy cooks out there, do you agree with Gray? “Desperation, laziness, overwhelming craving: I say these are three conditions that drive a person to make a tuna noodle casserole.” Craving yes, but laziness no!
