Am I correct that in your tuna-noodle recipe, you do not cook the 
fresh mushrooms first?

Tuna Noodles and Mushroom Casserole

 Monday Night Meals: Tuna, Noodles and Mushrooms

 One of my most hated dinners as a kid was tuna casserole, a 
gluey mess
 bound with my least favorite canned soup: cream of mushroom.

 The first time I ate tuna casserole from scratch, at a friend's 
house, I
 realized it didn't have to have those nasty little chunks of 
 mushroom.  This streamlined version will take just 10 minutes to 
 and it used fresh mushrooms and fresh chives.  It's still a 
 economical dinner, though, especially when you get the tuna on 

 Make this early in the day or even the night before - and don't 
omit the
 breadcrumb topping (which my childhood versions never had - 
another reason
 I always fed it to the dog under the table.)

 Tuna, Noodles and Mushrooms
 Serves 4-6

 1/2 pound egg noodles
 2 (6-ounce) cans tuna, drained and flaked
 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
 1 1/4 cups "light" sour cream
 3/4 cup milk
 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
 Salt and pepper to taste
 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
 2 tablespoons melted butter

 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly butter a 2-quart 
baking dish.

 In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the noodles.  
Drain them and
 return them to the pot.  Mix in the tuna, mushrooms, sour cream, 
 chives, salt and pepper.  Spoon into the prepared casserole 

 In a small bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs, grated cheese 
and melted
 butter.  Sprinkle over the top of the casserole.  Bake for 40 
minutes or
 until steaming hot.
