This dish made a good light lunch. I did not want anything heavy and it met the requirement. Good flavor.


I've had a recipe, sort of, that I have used for years. I found this one and decided to try something new. I was kind of surprised how much I liked it. I'm pretty sure I'll be using it from now on.


I made this for dinner tonight, but I made some substitutions and omitted some ingredients. Everyone liked it. Instead of the mushroom soup, I used 2 cans of cream of shrimp soup. I thought the shrimp and tuna flavors would go nicely together, and I'm not a fan of mushrooms. I used 2 cans of 1% milk instead of evaporated milk to cut calories. I omitted the veggies and potato chips. I used a 2 1/2 inch block of cheese, first cutting it into slices and then cubing it. I also used 3 cans of tuna and then crushed a few crackers for the top.


Very good and healthy. You can substitute 1 can of cream of celery soup with 1 can of cream of mushroom soup together for the 2 cans and add 1 package frozen peas to add volume.


I say that because it is very RARE that hubby lets me do a casserole. But I did last night for supper. It was very good, added lots more onion tho.....I like tuna casserole creamy, some recipes are just too dry. 5-Stars *****


Great recipe, reminds me of mom's tuna casserole, very easy to alter to your own taste. I use peas and mushrooms instead of the celery and onions, rarely any leftovers.


A different spin on Tuna Casserole.Easy and fast.
