This was very yummy, everyone enjoyed this in my house. I have made tuna casserole before but with peas, but there are people in my family who hate peas, so thought I would give this a try. The ingredients are normal cuboard. The only thing is that you did not list onion in your ingredients required. I used 1 small onion and diced it. I will make this again. Thank you Faith77
