I thought this recipe was very bland. I had to add a ton of salt and pepper to it and it was still not great. I also added green pepper, onions, garlic, celery and mushrooms that had been seasoned and cooked. It's a good guide for a tuna casserole that doesn't use cream soup but definitely requires some creative liberties.

I had a craving for tuna noodle casserole but did not have any cream soup on hand. This recipe fit the bill. The only change I made was to saute some onions in the butter before I added the flour, and I used mozarella instead of cheddar becuase that is what I had available. I also added some salt and pepper to the mixture before baking, and then I sprinkled some breadcrumbs on top. This was really easy and realy tasty - will add to my permanent recipe file!
