While I am waxing nostalgic, I decided to post another favorite dish that my mom used to make. She would make this every once in a while when she did not have enough time to prepare a big meal. It is like comfort food to me. I know that this will probably not be everyone's favorite, and it is certainly not a fancy gourmet dish, but if you like tuna casserole, you will love this. I used my favorite basic ingredients to replicate a recipe similar to what she used to make.
I used radiatore pasta, but fusilli (spiral shaped) pasta is also good for this.

To add insult to injury, top with crushed potato chips:
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. The potato chips should be a nice golden brown:
This is so yummy. It is also quick, easy, and inexpensive to make. I hope you like it.
