“My mom won a blue ribbon at a cooking contest for this casserole back when I was a little girl. It was a regular at our house and each time we had it, she told us again about her blue ribbon. It definitely tasted like a winner. (Mama added juice from one can of tuna to casserole and drained the other down the sink.)”
