Tuna Casserole

If you are Catholic like me, you can’t eat meat on Fridays during Lent. I am often times trying to find meat free recipes to make that my kids like (and I have husband who isn’t a fan of fish). This is one of those recipes that everyone liked. Best of all, you can replace out the tuna with any sort of meat you’d like, and it will be just as good!
