Hotdish recipe for National Noodle Day
Today is National Noodle Day, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to share a favorite recipe for hotdish, prepared Minnesota-style using cream of mushroom soup and potato chips on top. We checked in with Nick Oliveri, who loves hotdish so much that he has a Facebook page devoted to it. He shared this recipe for tuna noodle casserole:
