“This is a delicious casserole that can be made using either tuna or 1-1/2 cups or more of cooked cubed chicken or even cooked turkey --- for a thinner sauce use 1 cup of milk or half and half instead of 3/4 cup, prep time includes boiling the egg noodles, if you are not a garlic-lover then you may omit the garlic powder and to zing the flavor up even more add in 1-1/2 tablespoons of lemon juice”
