What’s in a name? Plenty. Today’s dish is an homage to Spain which may not need much homage as it has firmly planted itself on the New York restaurant scene. I count no fewer than 42 tapas restaurants in Manhattan alone on http://spanishtapasnyc.com/. But if you want something really Spanish, I suggest you head there. Because this dish has its roots firmly planted in the US of A. It was a mainstay in many a household when I was growing up. It was prized for its simplicity and the speed with which it could appear on the dinner table. So if Spanish isn’t your strong suit, here’s the translation: Tuna Noodle Casserole. But would you have stopped to read a post about Tuna Noodle Casserole? I didn’t think so.
