Very good. The cream of celery soup gave a nice flavor. I added the mushrooms and 1/2 t salt. I used more cheese, 1 cup on top. We really liked this. Will make again. Thanks, Tara!

I have been jonesing for tuna casserole for awhile now and this hit the spot. Cream of celery soup and mushrooms are a must (though my mom always made it with peas- which is good too). I added the full cup (and a generous one at that) of cheese into the casserole and topped it with crushed cracker crumbs instead (though I like crushed potato chips as well). Really good!!! Thanks for posting this Tara- I will be making this again and again. I wonder how it would taste with chicken? Hmmmm....

Yummy, yummy, yummy! I must say I made a "few" changes. I didn't have cr. of celery so I subbed cr. of chicken. I also decreased the mayo to 1/4 c., put more cheddar in, added some softened cream cheese (approx. 4 oz.) and added a can of drained mushrooms. Rich delicious comfort food. Thanks for the inspiration!

Wonderful recipe! I decreased the mayo to 1/4 cup and then added 1/4 cup of sour cream. We like the tuna that is packed in foil packages. I was afraid it might be too much tuna in the dish, but will use that amount again. I, too, used more cheddar than called for. Added a couple handfuls of frozen peas along with some sliced mushrooms. We like celery so upped the amount to 3/4 cup. Thanks, Tara, this is a definite keeper.

The problems that I had with this recipe were probably my fault when I doubled the recipe. The mayo taste was too strong for my family's taste.

As far as tuna casserole goes, it doesn't get much better than this. I use the entire package of no yolk noodles because it fits nicely into a 9x12 pan and saute the onions and celery until tender before adding to the mixture. I drain 2 cans of italian tuna and use the entire can of evaporated milk (fat free) I also add more cheddar cheese than stated. You do need to be careful with this recipe, because it can turn out dry after baking (Remember this when using the whole pkg of noodles). That's why I add a little more moisture beforehand. Wonderfully easy and delish! Thank you Tara!

This is a really easy and delicious recipe. I used a couple hands full of peas instead of mushrooms, and extra cheese and we loved it. I wasn't sure what size can of tuna to use so I used 2 of the small cans and it worked out great. Thanks Tara!

This is very tasty casserole. I added some nonya spice but that's the only change I made. One of the best tuna casseroles I've tried, definitely. Only thing I would add is some crispy breadcrumbs or crackers crumbs on top.

I topped this with "French Fried Onion's". Very good tuna casserole. Easy to make and adapt.

Oh, this casserole was AWESOME!!! I used a 4 oz. can of drained mushrooms, and also added about 1/2 of a 16 oz. bag of frozen green peas, thawed. I also added a dash of garlic powder. This will definitely go into my list of faves!!! Plus it is EASY!!! Thank you:) ~Manda
