I've made this several times now and it is a favourite! I brown the onion and celery first, substitute the sour cream with yogurt and add 1/2 tsp each of dill, basil and pepper. Sometimes I will substitute the zucchini with a package of thawed spinach. I usually just mix everything (instead of layering) together.

Hmmm...interesting. I had a little bit of a tough time getting passed the weird taste of the heated mayonnaise in this. It's a decent dish, if you don't have cream of mushroom soup on hand to make the real deal. I might make this again, but will leave out some of the mayo next time.

One of the better tuna casseroles I've made. I did substitute mushrooms for the zucchini.
