*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #55* I should have realized from the ingredients that this would be very mild. I prepared this according to directions with the exception of subbing artisan Taco cheese blend for cheddar. Not too flavorful the first night, but made a large quantity for 2. Tonight. I took 1/2 of the leftovers and added 3 Tbsp. melted butter with 2 tsp. crushed garlic and 1/2 T. seasoned salt, and covered with shredded extra sharp cheddar, and warmed in a 350* oven for 20 minutes. MUCH more flavor ! Will add same to the last for another night. Thanks for posting, Mersaydees.

This was a simple, lower calorie casserole to put together. I only used 10 ounces of tuna and increased the pasta to the full 12 ounce box. So my casserole was not as creamy but still very tasty. Made for Please Review My Recipe 2012

I loved this take on tuna casserole! You couldn't tell it was made with lighter ingredients at all. I liked the tang from the dijon mustard, but my husband didn't care for that as much. I wouldn't change a thing about this except maybe just leave the breadcrumbs off next time. Thanks for posting! Made for Photo Tag.

We really loved this tuna dish, & the only changes I made were to use 2 cups of peas & 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper along with a pinch of salt! Will be making this one again, I know! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my group mates in the current Aus/NZ Recipe Swap]

This casserole is delicious and perfectly seasoned for my taste. I didn't have whole wheat rotini so used tri-colour rotini instead, used fat-free yogurt and regular cheddar cheese, and topped it with a mixture of French-fried onions (I was really surprised to find these at my grocer!) and regular panko. It reheats really well. I will definitely make this yummy dish again!

This is pretty good but the baking time is off -- it should be at least 20 - 30 minutes. I thought it was a good lower cal version of an old favorite comfort food though. Thanks for sharing!

I've never had tuna casserole before, but I really enjoyed this one. Very easy to make, and so creamy and delicious without all the calories. I ran out of peas so I threw in some lima beans as well- I liked them in there. I thought it was very flavorful as written, but I did use taco cheese instead of regular cheese. A winning recipe.
