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!
I have the same recipe in my Better Home and Gardens cook book. This is my favorite one and it is always a hit. It tastes so much better than tradition Tuna Casserole with cream of mushroom soup. I do add a little bit of garlic powder to mine for some flavor. I also omit the pimentos as they just add color. It's such an easy recipe and I always have to double it.
This turned out very nice. I had all the ingredients on hand and it was easy to do. The only thing we didn't like was the bread crumb topping. Next time maybe I will just sprinkle some parm. cheese on the top. Thanks for the recipe.
This is the best tuna casserole I've had! The sauce is smooth and creamy, just cheesey enough, and the bread crumb topping is perfect (take the time to make your own soft breadcrumbs, it's worth it!). I don't care for onions so left them out and just used extra celery. This is a delicious go-to meal ,made from ingredients I always have on hand - thanks for posting the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008
