This was one of the best tuna casseroles I have ever tasted! Very easy to prepare and great for the beginning cook. The only change I made was the addition of 1/4 cup of cream to make it a bit more moist, along with salt and pepper to taste. Served it with a salad and dilled peas. It was a hit!

Loved this recipe! I used sea shell macaroni and also added about 1/4 cup half and half to make it creamier. I also added 1/2 tsp dill weed and 1/2 tsp. celery seed. I also added about 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the top along with the cheddar. I didn't have any Ritz crackers so I crushed up some small pretzels and used those instead. It was yummy!
