Ranch Tuna "Noodle" Casserole

I was craving tuna noodle casserole, but I am not really a fan of the shirataki noodles. So what is a good substitute for noodles? Well, I have had success with green beans (canned variety), zucchini ribbons, and spaghetti squash strands. I personally like green beans for this particular recipe. I used light ranch dressing to give it a little zing as well as use up my required healthy fats. Feel free to add celery or green peppers if you want more crunch as well. Don't forget to add 2 additional green per serving! Enjoy!
