This recipe is great! I also omitted the chicken soup and used sour cream instead of mayo. All my guests at brunch loved it. Thanks!

OMG! This was so yummy and creamy! Used 2 cans cream of chicken, omitted mushrooms, used sour cream (fat free) instead of mayo, and used mozzarella (skim milk) cheese instead of cheddar. We used cooking spray instead of butter. This was so creamy and delicious - I wanted to eat all of it and had to use some self control! haha

We really enjoyed this made it a bit different because have to watch my salt intake & canned soups are really high, so I subed the chicken soup with a bit of sour cream cuuld have used cream cheese but didn't have any.It will go into my cookbook for another day for sure thanks for posting, oh & it is easy too. tried this again the other night but because comercial soups have alot of salt & other things in them I used a recipe on recipezaar for cream soup mix for replacing soups #57287 it is a keeper for me will always use it instead of cream soups everyone should try it...

Good stuff! I used peas instead of mushrooms just for personal prefference. I also added the full amount of cheese to the sauce mixture, and instead of putting cheese on top, I added about 15 crumbled ritz crackers to the top before baking. When the dish was done, I sprinkled some onion powder on it, as I thought it was missing something. Next time I will add another can of tuna becuase, there was not much tuna flavor with just the one can.

The best tuna casserole I've had! Even DH liked it - he never eats tuna casserole. I used 2 cans of tuna and close to 8 oz shells. This is a keeper!

Very, very good! I added 2 cans of tuna (instead of 1) because this made a large amount and we like the taste of tuna. Also, used 12 oz of shells, because that's the only size package our store carried. Loved how the vegies blended in - my 7 yr old didn't even know she was eating onions and celery - a BIG plus! Served with a salad to balance off how creamy this was, but our family loved it. We'll make again soon.

Fantastic! To make it a little less heavy and greasy I used 2 tablespoons of butter (instead of 1/4 cup), the "light versions" of the cream of mushroom and cream of celery soups, and 2% cheese. I also doubled the amount of tuna. Since it's just my husband and I, this recipe is GREAT because it makes enough to freeze for future meals.
