Deluxe Tuna Casserole Recipe Makes Good Comfort Food

As a kid, my mom used to make tuna casserole all the time.  The good old red can of cream of mushroom soup was a staple in my mother’s kitchen.  Well, I pretty much stopped buying canned soups because I was a bit suspicious of the ingredients.  When I was at Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago I found an organic cream of mushroom soup and decided it was time to spruce up mom’s recipe a bit.  I bet everyone has their own memories of tuna casserole and you have probably made this comfort food recipe for your own kids.  Here is my version of the classic tuna casserole.  Let me know what you put into your own recipe!
