Spinach Tuna Casserole..this is SUPER YUMMY!!!

took this after we ate =)

5 cups uncooked egg noodles (I used no yolk noodles)
1 cup (8 oz) reduced fat sour cream
1/2 cup fat-free mayo (I used mayo with olive oil, reduced fat)
2-3 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp butter (I used 3 tbsp I Can't Believe it's Not Butter)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups fat-free milk (I used 3 cups)
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp shredded parmesan, divided (I used a little more)
1 pkg (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed
1 pkg (6 oz) reduced sodium chicken stuffing mix
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 pouches (6.4 oz each) light tuna, in water

preheat oven to 350...gather all ingredients

cook noodles according to pkg a small bowl combine sour cream, mayo and lemon juice, set aside

in large pot melt butter...stir in flour until blended...gradually stir in milk...bring to a boil and cook for 2 min or until thickened...remove from heat...stir in 1/3 cup parmesan until melted...stir in sour cream mixture then add spinach, stuffing, bread crumbs and tuna...mix well

drain noodles...spray 13x9" pan with cooking noodles in pan, then tuna mixture on top of noodles*...sprinkle with remaining parmesan
*the noodles got a little crusty, so next time I make this I am going to fold the noodles into the tuna mixture

cover and bake for 35 minutes...uncover and bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned

8 servings
