Tuna Casserole

This is a quick fix dinner for me sometimes. Very easy but yet delicious too. I used spaghetti for this version because that was what I was left with. But it would be better if you use macaroni or pasta shells. Anything that is small.

Hi. I would like to know more about casserole as I'm preparing a dish on casserole for my assignment. Hence i would like to ask whether is casserole considered as any food placed inside the oven for a few minutes?? What special oven do i have to use in order to make a casserole?? Is there any special differences between casserole and baked pasta or something like that??
Hope u are able to help me clear my doubts on casserole. Thanks!!
