I made this dish today. It was good, but needs adjustment. I used two cans of tuna, and with 8 oz of noodles, it requires more cheesesauce or at least a thinner one. My casserole was dry. Thin the cheese sauce with milk to make it creamier or use less noodles. I will make it again.

I had to doctor up the sauce with seasonings to get some kind of flavor into it. Also, the amount of liquid stated would have left me with a very dry casserole, so I tripled the sauce and it was perfect. I topped the casserole with buttered Panko crumb and some parm cheese. This recipe has the makings of a good dish, but you really need to play around with it. Thank you Cat!

I never thought I would like Tuna Casserole made without Mushroom soup. Boy was I wrong! This was fantastic! I doubled the sauce and added a few splashes of Frank's to it. I used frozen peas and a big can of tuna and I added a can of mushrooms. So good with a sprinkle of french fried onions on top. YUM! thanks for the great recipe Cat!
