This calorie free, gluten free and soy free product is amazing. Not only does it taste like a noodle but the company makes them in all shapes and sizes.

Tuna Miracle Noodle and Broccoli Casserole

I will be honest, I was hungry for a tuna casserole. While trying to stay away from dairy and gluten, I have found myself not making some of my favorite comfort foods. I used to make tuna casserole on a regular basis when my kids were little. They are all grown now and they still love it.

Another dish that they grew up eating was Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole. It was an annual dish that I always was asked to bring for Thanksgiving. As much as the family loved it, I am still amazed that I only made it on holidays.

The cravings for the two dish came together for my recipe entry and dinner!!! Even though I did not use any cheese or cream of soups, I still managed to make a creamy casserole with plenty of flavor.

My recipe entry was not chosen as a winner but now I have no excuses because I can enjoy my favorite comfort food and still stay away from my food intolerance’s. That’s a win in my book!!
