    lolablitz's Note:

    I made this tonight and my extremely picky 3 year old ate three helpings, so I'm posting it because it is solid gold! Use one slice of bread in a food processor to make about 3/4 cup of soft breadcrumbs.

      I loved this recipe. It was easy to make and loved that there wasn't tons of sodium. I added peas and fresh parsley into the cream mixture. It turned out wonderfully. I will be making this again.

      Best tuna casserole we've had. The only changes I made were adding some finely chopped celery to the carrot, onion mixture and fresh chopped parsley to the cream sauce. I used about about half the amount of butter called for. This was so much better than any recipes I've tried with creamed soup. Thanks so much for posting the recipe.

      I have been looking for a good tuna noodle casserole recipe that didn't have canned soup as the base and this is the one! It's great! I didn't use bread crumbs and it was delicious even without it. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
