Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Here is a easy labor casserole for you to try. I have been craving tuna casserole for awhile, but wanted something different than the cream soup, peas, and noodles. I saw this recipe on Good Housekeeping and knew I had to give it a try. The casserole hit the spot and is filled with creamy pasta, flavorful tuna, and tasty veggies. This is a great twist on an old favorite! Enjoy!
Tuna Melt Casserole
Meanwhile, in 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until blended and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk; increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese until blended.
Add cheese sauce and tuna to pasta and broccoli in saucepot; toss until evenly mixed. Transfer mixture to shallow 3 1/2-quart casserole or 13-inch by 9-inch glass baking dish. Arrange tomato slices on top, overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
Cover baking dish with foil and bake 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly
