    Sashayy's Note:

    Although this is a low fat recipe, it is absolutely scrumptious and a real kid pleaser! Leftovers taste great microwaved. Can be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake.

      GREAT RECIPE! I am always looking for a new healthier version of tuna casserole and this was it. I used whole wheat elbow noodles, fat free cream of mushroom soup, low fat cheddar cheese, peas and I added less mayo. Next time I am going to try with using all fat free ingredients and see how that is. I liked the creamy texture and the addition of celery. Thanks for a great recipe!

      This is AWESOME! I have made it twice in the last two weeks! I made it the first time with cream of chicken soup and no celery and it was still quite good. The second time I followed the recipe exactly and it was wonderful! Thanks!

      This was a really good casserole. I didn't have celery, so I used extra red pepper. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I didn't like was the black pepper, so I will cut back some the next time. Will definitely make again. Thanks!
