Cheesy Tuna Noodle Casserole with Green Olives

Easy Cheesy Tuna Casserole - it has green olives. Honestly I would have left them out but they turned out to be the best part!

Turkey Tetrazzini, a creamy casserole of turkey, mushrooms, sherry and pasta is like a little black dress; it never really goes out of style. Developed by a chef for a favorite Opera singer, the name Tetrazzini, is exotic, but the flavors are familiar and it is always a crowd pleaser.
