Spinach may not be the first ingredient you think of when you think of tuna casserole. But as the recipe below shows, maybe it should be. Think of this as a tuna casserole that gets a seriously elegant upgrade. There are no peas, and no mushroom soup. Just good, fresh ingredients that take that old tuna casserole your mom used to make and turns it into something truly special.
One of the best things about this is that it all comes together in just one dish before being transferred to a casserole dish for a final bake in the oven. But even though there are several components of this dish - softened vegetables, sauce, and noodles, they all come together in the same pot. Before that final bake, they get a layer of cheese and bread crumbs sprinkled on top for a bit of texture, making the dish come pretty close to perfection. I dare say this is one tuna casserole you could even serve when entertaining.
