Yummy and affordable to make! This beats Tuna Helper anyday. From TOH Quick Cooking '99. (I usually double this when making.)

This is very good and very rich. I am used to a dryer tuna noodle casserole. I like the cheddar flavor and the creaminess of this casserole. Very hearty and heartwarming for the colder months ahead.

A creamy, cheesy and rich casserole. I discovered I was out of milk (oops) and since I had already started the recipe, I wound up using fat free half & half. The cream of celery soup adds a distinctive flavor and I actually liked it better than using the usual cream of mushroom. I'm going to be using this as my base tuna casserole from now on, but will be adding a small can of peas since we love it that way. To us, this is also more than 4 servings since I served it with a salad, vegie and bread.
