I don't like to admit this, but I've never had tuna casserole. After seeing your gorgeous rendition, I may have to change that very soon! It looks delicious. :D

NO! (LOL, bet you have never gotten that comment before but I could not resist as I cannot stand tuna.) However, I am sure tuna lovers will say YES! (I hope you are laughing at my silliness and not mad at me for a negative comment.)
