      Pretty good! I was drawn to it by the fact that it was made with cottage cheese instead of a cream soup... and it's healthy. Used brown rice pasta (gluten free). I may add a little seasoning salt next time but it was pretty close to perfect in my opinion. Will make it again!

      This recipe has a very good flavor and was a big hit with my hubby...I let him rate it and the only reason he gave it 4 stars is because he missed the crunch of the potato chips on top which is the way I usually make tuna casserole. I liked the fact that it was not made with cream soups so I could make it with lowfat cottage cheese and sour cream. I thought the recipe itself was a little fussy. I just combined all the ingredients, mixed it with the noodles and threw it in the oven...I think it only needs about 30 min to heat thru...Don't forget the peas which I didnt see included in the directions...Overall a good recipe and I would try it again! Thanks for submitting!
