    Cat Berner's Note:

    I searched but didn't see another recipe exactly like this one posted, so I hope I'm not posting a repeat! You'll never go back to canned soup tuna noodle casserole after trying this, at least I certainly haven't. This is from Better Homes and Gardens.

      I think this dish has a lot of potential, and I'm sure I'll make it again. Before attempting this again, I'll figure out what seasonings will work for me to make it more flavorful.

      I made this again tonight, and it was a lot better! I added some fresh dill, as dill is really good paired with just about any fish. I also tripled the amounts of garlic and black pepper that went into it; it was very flavorful this time around. I've added this to my recipe book with my additions. Substituting 2 cans of chicken in place of the tuna..(for some reason people here think they don't like hot tuna!;)) I think I'd also make a bit more of the gravy mixture next time because I'd have liked it a little creamier, but considering I didn't really put exactly 8oz of noodles in, (dumped more on accident)it is probably the reason it wasn't as creamy. Anyway, excellent recipes.

      DH and I really enjoyed this for our dinner with a salad. The sauce was creamy and cheesey, I used the roasted red peppers and added a touch of minced garlic...and like loof I had everything on hand. I am putting this in my Favorites of 2012 and know that it will come in handy. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

      I found this from-scratch recipe to use instead of mine because I was out of evap milk. I liked the regular milk in this even better. I added carrots but will skip next time because my 3 y/o wouldn't eat much when she saw them in the casserole. I will add more salt next time and maybe some peas (without sugar - did you know Green Giant is adding sugar to their frozen peas now? yuck). Thanks for the keeper!
