This is one of the best tuna casseroles I've made! I left out the onion (personal pref) and used the optional red pepper and cheddar (on top). I was trying to use stuff from the pantry so I used some penne pasta that I had, plus a handful of noodles. This is so creamy and flavorful, and so quick to make from ingredients I always have on hand. Thanks for posting this great recipe! Made for the Best of 2008 event

I really enjoyed this. The mayonnaise and cream cheese gave it a really tasty creamy flavour without going over the top. I have lots left over in the fridge for lunch today!
