"Grown-up" Tuna Noodle Casserole before baking
Time has slipped away from me lately. Seems I've been busy with things that have kept out of my kitchen more than I like. We've still had some great meals, but I haven't been taking photos. I just made one of the best risottos that I've ever eaten, but you know how it goes with risotto -- you want to eat it the moment that last ladle-full of broth is stirred into the pot. Plus, I had people (yes, you're correct in assuming it was family) who would openly voice their major discontent at not eating immediately. Stopping for a photo shoot would have been impossible, and possibly dangerous.
One dish I've made recently -- twice in the span of one week -- is this Grown-up Tuna Noodle Casserole. We are crazy for it! The "grown-up" must come from the wine that's added to the sauce and possibly the addition of capers to the recipe; adult comfort food, for sure. I substituted sweet sherry for the wine the first time I made it, and dry sherry the second. This tuna noodle casserole is also the reason I have been putting cremini mushrooms in just about everything lately (e.g. Potato and Mushroom Tortes).
So, with an outlook of continuing to be busy with stuff -- a possible painting project, a requested hand-knit, and a new range installation this week [yay!] -- I will forward you to the recipe for Grown-up Tuna Noodle Casserole from the Kitchn.

Eileen, my Dad was no fan of tuna casserole so my mom never made it for our family when I was growing up. I may just be the only person alive (besides my siblings) who has never had tuna casserole. So I shall correct that with your recipe. Thanks!

Would you believe, I've never had tuna casserole before?

O.k... Stacey and Tom -- you both need to make this. I actually don't remember my mother ever making tuna noodle casserole, but I did it for my girls when they were little (and big) because they asked for it. My husband loves this "grown-up" version and that says a lot. He has NEVER been fond of tuna noodle casseroles or mac & cheese. This one is different. This is good comfort food, Stacey, if you're snowed in this week!
