A Real "Down-Home" Dinner

When I was a little girl growing up in the Pennsylvania woods, my mother used to bake up this HUGE pot of her tuna noodle casserole for dinner. I would butter up some bread, sit down with a cold, tall glass of milk, and eat myself stuffed with it at every meal for days until it was gone.
When I became a mom, I added cheese. Enjoy!
