      This was very good, lots of veggies, I was in heaven and hubby took the left overs to micro for lunch at work. He usually opts for an Arby's.

      We thought this was very good. Like other reviewers, I was drawn to this recipe because it did not include the yucky condensed canned soups that other recipes call for. I try to avoid using those when I can. I didn't really measure much of anything, and other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I had to use a large lasagna pan to bake it and after 30 minutes the breadcrumbs were golden and it was perfect. Oh, one substitution I made- I used canned chicken instead of tuna, as my husband detests canned tuna. Even my 1 year old loved it and cleaned his plate. This is a make again for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      I haven't made this yet, but I'm going to give it 5 stars right now just for not calling for canned soup! I'm going to make tune casserole tonight because I've got some left over pasta and veggies to use and up and I bet I had to look through 20 recipes for tuna noodle casserole before I could find one that didn't call for nasty canned soup! thank you for posting. I will be making a few subsitutes but I'm sure this will work out perfect! Thanks!
