First off...I LOVE tuna and noodles. I always have. I always will. Don't ask me why, it's just one of life's great mysteries. This is the best version I have ever had! I never, never, ever would have thought of adding mayo. *WOW* does it make a difference! We did add peas because, well...because peas must be included. (At least we think so.) Thanks for the recipe!

My family groaned when they found out I was making yet another tuna noodle casserole--they don't like them very much. However, they liked this one! First time ever, so I guess it really is the "best ever..."

A more flavorful version of a childhood favorite! My husband liked it and had three servings (although he will eat almost anything) but the one that sealed the deal is our 7 year old who swears she HATES both mayo and tuna - she "hates" it so much she had two servings! LOL I did make a few changes - used cream of celery soup instead of cream of chicken, added sauted garlic along with the onions, added both mozzarella and cheddar to the mixture, a can of baby peas and topped with additional mild cheddar along with the potato chips.

Had a hankerin' to re-live my 70's childhood living on casseroles. Great recipe. Just added the requisite peas and crushed potato chips on top. Seriously good.

I made this just as the recipe said except I added some frozen peas and carrots and (since I doubled the recipe) added a third can of tuna. In the future, I will sauté the celery and onions because they don't cook in the casserole. My daughter is very sensitive to raw onions, so had a difficult time eating this dish. Other than that, this was a very delicious recipe. I will be making it again. I will also be trying the potato chips or French onions on top next time.

Truly the best tuna casserole I have ever had! I did make a few changes, too, substituting cream of celery and cream of mushroom soups, sautéing onions, garlic, and celery before adding it to the mixture, adding red pepper flakes, fresh Parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes. Then I topped the cheddar cheese with French-fried onions. It was amazing!

Very very good! I did exactly what the recipe states, only added more cheese on top right before setting my baking dish in the oven. The flavor was excellent!!! Will be making this again for sure! Thanks for posting!

I've tried tuna casserole recipes where they turn out somewhat dry and nothing to remember. This was SOOO good. So creamy and tasty. Made it exactly as the recipe directed. For user Okra who felt they needed to research 6 oz cooked pasta, it means 6 oz of dry pasta cooked...The only thing I added was a light sprinkling of cheddar cheese and mozzarella on top. My boyfriend was amazed from the very first bite and I was too. Will DEFINITELY be making this again. This made it into the book of the best recipes in our kitchen! Thank you!!

This was delicious. I made it yesterday for company and everyone loved it. I doubled it for 7 people and all but one serving was eaten. I added peas, corn, and carrots but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I plan to make it again soon!
