      This was the best tuna casserole I've ever tasted. I loved the olives, and was surprized that the mustard wasn't overpowering, it was the perfect amount. I did add a little garlic and diced fresh mushrooms, as well as a tsp of grated lemon zest. This is my new favorite casserole.

      This is a supurb combination of flavors. I lightened this recipe for the Make it Healthier game. The flavors are wonderful and I am sure the full fat version would be out of this world because the lighter version is TDF.

      Very good. Not as dry as the casseroles made with cream soups, but kind of lengthy. I may make again if I have excess time, but not something I will make on a weeknight again. Thanks for sharing.
