Let's go make some fantastic tuna fish casserole!
The Background Story
Tuna Fish Casserole (or "Tuna Casserole") is one of those wonderful, easy, stove-top meals. Not quite a one-pot meal, a second vessel is used to pre-cook the noodles. We use a paella pan (or larger pot or dutch oven) to prepare the other ingredients and to assemble the entire dish.
Tuna Fish Casserole is ready fairly quickly. Tuna Casserole was a dish early in our repetoire. It satisfied, as young people, a need to have an easy, economical, quick meal that would yield leftovers to heat up, quickly and easily, the next evening.
Nothing is as economical is it used to be ... prices invariably rise but it's still a satisfying meal made on the stove-top and it's still easy to make using a variety of ingredients including canned soup, a can of tuna, noodles and fresh and frozen vegetables and, in a pinch, it's still a meal we enjoy once in a while!
Today, we always choose frozen peas (as they are available in "organic" and reasonable priced, they cook quickly and taste and texture close to fresh) and fresh mushrooms rather than canned which, in our view, lack in taste and may be, by comparison, nutritionally deficient. (Canned, though, is an excellent option when presented with unavailability of fresh.)
