Cook the noodles in boiling water until tender, drain. 

In a large heat-proof bowl combine the noodles, drained tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, pimiento, and salt.

In a saucepan blend the celery soup and milk together; heat through.  Add the cheese, cook and stir until the cheese melts.  Add the soup/cheese mixture to the noodle mixture. 

Turn oven on to 425 degrees.

Lightly grease a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish and pour the casserole mixture into the dish.  Sprinkle the almonds over the top.  Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
