When was tuna noodle casserole invented?

According to American food writer Heather Arndt Anderson, the first recipe for tuna casserole appeared in Sunset Magazine in 1930. It was called Noodles and Tuna Fish en Casserole and included mushrooms and a cheese topping.

Tuna casserole

Tuna casserole is a casserole primarily made with pasta and canned tuna, with canned peas and corn sometimes added. The dish is often topped with potato chips, cornflakes, bread crumbs, or canned fried onions. Tuna casseroles are budget-friendly and comforting.

How do you moisten dry tuna casserole?

Place in a casserole dish, pour in a few cups of hot chicken or beef broth, cover it, and let it sit a bit.
