Tuna Noodle Casserole

This Tuna Noodle Casserole is a delicious and hearty meal.  It's comfort food at its finest!

I feel like I've been in a dinner rut for a while.  Mike and I tend to eat a lot of the same meals for dinner every week.  Honestly, it gets a little boring, but it's pretty easy!

A few weeks ago I decided it was time to make something different.  I had some wedges of garlic herb cheese that needed to be used.  After looking through my cupboards I discovered that I had the necessary ingredients for Tuna Noodle Casserole.  While a meal both Mike and I grew up with, I had never prepared it myself.

This meal was simple to make, and quick enough for me to make after work!  Mike and I both really liked the casserole.  In fact, while we were eating, Mike told me I should take pictures for my blog!  So, after dinner I did just that!  I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we did.
