Here's another version of a tuna noodle casserole. This one has tomatoes, and uses shell macaroni.

DIRECTIONS

Cook macaroni shells in boiling salted water according to package directions; rinse in hot water and drain. Meanwhile, melt butter or margarine in a skillet. Add onion; cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Add milk; cook and stir constantly until mixture is smooth and thickened. Add cheese. Stir mixture until cheese melts. Stir in tomatoes and tuna; heat thoroughly. Turn drained macaroni into 2-quart casserole. Pour hot tomato-tuna over macaroni; toss to mix well. Sprinkle crumbs over top. Bake in moderate oven 375° about 20 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated and crumbs brown. Makes 8 servings.
