This was very good! My daughter requested Tuna Casserole for dinner and it has been a long time since I've made it so I found your recipe. Fast and simple with peas as a side dish! I skipped the thyme and the potato chip topping and just topped with cheese the last 5 minutes. It filled up a 2 QT dish perfectly so next time I may use a larger dish. Thanks so much for posting!

Excellent tuna casserole. Loved the addition of onion and thyme. Topped it with 1 cup of crushed potato chips. I usually prefer canned peas in my tuna casserole, but I didn't miss them at all in this recipe. Made for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef.

We liberally sampled it before it was even baked and have a winner. This is like an old recipe I had from my aunt-by-marriage and lost. Thank you!
