Yummy cheesy tuna casserole! Used Cream Soup Substitutes made with mushroom broth instead of canned soup and frozen peas. I remembered making this recipe when it came out in SL, and there was a variation for Chicken Casserole which used a can of cream of chicken soup and a 5 oz. can of chunk white chicken. they topped it with buttery animal shaped crackers made by Ritz. Don't know if those are still sold, so I'd use original or parmesan goldfish (even though it's the wrong animal:)) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is a great tuna casserole, even my husband who isn't much of a tuna person loved it. I used half a bag of frozen peas instead of canned and would do that again. Thanks.
Good base recipe. Modified it to what I had available and doubled. Used chunk chicken not drained, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom. Cup Regular milk. Parmesan cheese in addition to cheddar. Cup of mixed vegetables. Garlic salt and dried onions. Baked covered 25 minutes and then cracker crumbs and more parmesan cheese on top. Baked Uncovered 5 minutes.
