This is the lightest and tastiest tuna casserole I've had. I made this especially for work lunches and it's perfect. Thanks, Sharon! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap 44, September 2010.

WOW... I was looking for a recipe using zucchini and tuna... boy what a scrumptious meal!! I served it with garlic bread (double starch, ok) and it was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly... wonderful comfort food!

excellent! I used whole wheat noodles, and threw in peas as well. Sprinkled a bit of good quality Romano over the top before baking. Otherwise, followed to a T and it turned out great. As with most casseroles, it was even better leftover the next day, reheated for lunch with a side salad. My husband raved and asked to put it in the monthly rotation. Thanks again for another great recipe Sharon!
