Did You Know. . .

that Campbell's made tuna noodle casserole famous?  According to the chacha.com website, in the 1930s the Campbell Soup Company used advertisements, brochures and cookbooks to promote casserole recipes (including Tuna Noodle Casserole) all the while portraying their Cream of Mushroom soup as a quick and economical alternative to having to make sauces from scratch.
