My sister Dena is known for making a killer tuna casserole. I struggle with tuna but Rikard loves it so I called her up the other day and had her walk me through it. She suggested using bread crumbs on top but I didn’t have any so I used fried onions and it was delicious. I love casseroles like this; you can pretty much put anything into them. I actually really enjoyed this casserole and finally found a way I will eat tuna.
This also would be a great freezer meal. I am always on the lookout for good freezer meals. Whenever I go back to the States to visit I make a bunch of freezer meals for Rikard, I like to give him a good combination of meals. I mean seriously poor guy all alone in the house without me, the least I can do is still feed him. Haha
My dear friend Fanny says a saying that pops into my head right now… I hope I don’t mess this up. “When the cats go out, the rats come out to play”. Usually it is Fanny and I that are the rats when the guys are out of town working.

1. Cook noodles al dente. The last few minutes throw the onions into the boiling water (just to soften them up, so they aren’t too strong in the casserole)
