So, as the little sister, I get first pick, (it’s the law of nature- look it up), and I have selected the Tuna Noodle Casserole. Ding! Ding!
Now, as with any competition, you want to start strong so you are likely wondering, “why would one start so aggressively with, in all reality, the bologna of pasta dishes?”
Au contraire mon ami! Tuna Noodle Casserole is the dish that all comfort dishes aspire to be! It is, in its purest form, the meal that you secretly give your inner child a high-five to when it makes its presence known. It oozes sophistication, allowing your mind to say, “I can make tuna fancy. Watch me do my fancy dance!”
Now, I particularly love dishes that seem fancy, yet did not require a lot of pretension, so you will find that all of my recipe’s ingredients will come out of a bag, can, or would likely be found in bulk in any store. In essence, when the world is in chaos, predicted in 20… whatever, you could make this dish, even over the earth’s molten core.
Jessica Says… Seriously? Tuna noodle casserole? There is nothing about tuna noodle casserole that makes my inner child happy. In fact, when my my inner child hears tuna noodle casserole, it says, “Ewww, gross!” I am not looking forward to this challenge. Sigh. So my purpose this week to make a tuna noodle casserole dish that is upscale and truly delicious. Restaurant quality – in taste and preparation. Yes, it may be difficult, but it will be worth it if it somehow makes tuna noodle casserole palatable. Alright, I am off to go find imported tuna packed in olive oil. Seriously, wish me luck…
