Tuna noodle casserole is a classic Midwest dish. It's full of noodles, creamy soup and lots of tuna. Traditionally it's thrown together and then baked in the oven. However, this time we took an even faster approach. This quick one-pot dish will take just 20 minutes to throw together and will feed a hungry crowd!
