I was craving a tuna noodle casserole and searched 3 web sites before deciding on this one. Thanks so much it totally hit the spot. A few changes I made: sauteed onions and garlic in butter, added soup, milk and heated in a pan. Used a whole bag of no yolk noodles and added about 1 C frozen peas and carrots. I used 3 cans tuna and mixed in 1 C shredded white cheddar. Finally - topped with breadcrumbs. EXCELLENT. Thanks!

A Big 5 Stars! This was so flavorful and creamy, yet not heavy. I did use egg noodles instead of wheat fusilli just because I had them. Counting my weight watcher points never tasted so good. Also a big hit with my picky family. Thanks Kittencal for another great recipe!

Comfort food heaven! Made this for my DH and I on a cold winter night in this last weekend. I halved the recipe since it was just the two of us and used a 1.5 qt round baking dish. I used the cream of celery soup and skipped the mayo altogether. I added the half a cup of grated cheese into the mixture and sprinkled just a little on the top at the very end. I baked for a total of 25 minutes, since we were getting impatient and because I was making a smaller amount - it was hot through and through. I'm also embarrassed to say, we ate the entire thing in one night! It was that good! Made for Kittencal-tag-a-thon.
