Stovetop Tuna Casserole Recipe

I love my usual Tuna Casserole recipe but my oven is not playing very nicely lately. So? I needed a stovetop option!

This Tuna Casserole recipe for the stovetop was really good. Really, really good! I don’t know about you, but every so often I get crunchy noodles because I didn’t use the right amount of noodles and they didn’t get covered with enough sauce. Oops. But not any more!

It’s so easy and fast, I am not sure why I didn’t think of making tuna casserole on the stovetop before! This recipe comes from Enjoy.
