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
My husband and I both loved this casserole! I made tuna casserole once in a blue moon, but may make it more now! Thanks for a delicious dish! Made for PRMR game.
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!
We all loved this tuna casserole. This morning we were fighting over who got to take the leftovers for lunch today. I used all the ingredients except I didn't have the cream cheese when it finally came to making it so I just used an extra cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese. I added some garlic powder for personal taste. The topping of cheese with bread crumbs really added a wonderful finish.
My son just went back for seconds....YUM! I love that this casserole does not use any canned soups. This is the tuna casserole recipe that I will use from now on! Thanks!
My new tuna casserole recipe! I added green pepper to the red, but other wise followed the recipe (well ok, I used more cheese than called for, but there's no such thing as too much cheese!). You got a really good review from DH "it's very good". Trust me, that's really good as his usual reviews are "it's good". LOL
I am on record as having a life-long fondness for the tuna casserole genre & Murray is my new hero. I made it exactly as written, had only 1-2 oz cheddar cheese I put in the tuna mix & seasoned my plain breadcrumbs w/a mix of seasoning salt, black pepper, paprika, parsley + chives. It was creamy w/o being overly so & taste perfect. I esp like the texture & flavor from the use of raw onion, celery & bell pepper. I served it w/the 1st watermelon of the season + coleslaw for a down-home comfort meal at its best. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
Nice, I used the extra wide "no yolks" egg noodles.
This was tasty but we found it to be a little dry. My casserole didn't end up looking like the photos however, so I don't know if it was that I used rotini? We skipped the red pepper and I think I would saute the celery and onion a bit next time. I will have to try this again! Made for PRMR. Thanks 2Bleu! :)
Great comfort food all around. And..on a cool late summer night, this was perfect. Followed your ingredients exactly except for the redpepper. I did opt to use the shredded cheddar on top with the breadcrumbs. This is a rich and creamy meal that doesn't require a side other than a dinner roll or some garlic bread. Made for TYM Tag.~
