Good as tuna Casserole can get. As others said very economical. I sauted 1/2 an onion, 1/2 c. celery chopped and about 1/2 tsp. garlic. Then added it to the casserole as I thought it was bland without. I also decreased the noodles to 10 oz. and added a 2nd can of tuna.


Had to make a lot of adjustments to make this one a keeper, so only 3 stars. Used less noodles, 3 cans of tuna, 1 cup sour cream instead of milk, 1 1/2 cups cheddar, 1 tsp. garlic powder, a dash of worcestershire sauce, a jar of mushrooms (fresh would have been better), and baked the mixture at 375 for about 20 minutes.


This was great. I did change it a little tho.......I added about 2 tsp. cayenne, used a little more milk than called for, and only about 2/3 of the package of noodles. I also added some onion powder, garlic, mushrooms, and a little finely diced red onion. While I was cooking the pasta, I added the butter, peas, onion, and mushrooms to a pot and simmered. Then I added the cream of mushroom soup, milk, cheese, and seasonings. I simmered this while I was finishing up the noodles. Once the noodles were done, I added them, and simmered it all for a few. Then I put it in a casserole dish, sprinkled the top w/a little more cheddar, and some italian breadcrumbs, and broiled until brown. It was an awesome tuna casserole for someone who likes things w/a little more spice.
