The ultimate comfort food! Easy and delicious!

"Delicious! This will be a "Keeper " in our home. I did have a couple of modifications...added a cup of peas as I sautéed the celery and onion and slightly increased the spices due to this addition. Also, since I didn't have breadcrumbs readily available, I crushed a half sleeve of Ritz crackers for the topping. Baked uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes. "

Tasty dish. I added two fresh minced jalapeño peppers with seeds removed and 1/2 cup of chopped poblano pepper. The cheese I used was Velveeta and about 2/3 cup. The topping was buttered corn flakes as that was what was in the house. This made a casserole worthy to eat in Tx. This dish has endless possibilities depending on what is in the house.

Great favor - reminds me of the tuna casserole of my childhood. The second time I made it I used only half the bread crumb mixture and added 1/2 cup frozen peas. Equally good both ways.

This is a great easy recipe that can be altered easily for variety if you stick to the fundamentals. Simple béchamel base, noodles, protein and the sky is the limit. The recipe as it stands is great and my kids love it.
