Bomb Diggigy! Me and my fiance really liked this and ate it all in just two meals. Nice and easy to make to. I'm typically not that good at cooking. I did add some nutritional yeast to the sauce though on my fiance's suggestion.
There is nothing of a seafood taste to this dish so I would take "tuna" out of the name. Plus, there is too much liquid to call it a casserole. And the "mashed" chick peas did not mix with the rest of the ingredients - you could taste them and feel them in your mouth. Maybe hummus would work better. It wasn't flavorful enough for all that work. The fried onion/potato chip topping, although packing a huge calorie and fat punch, was the best part, but didn't make the recipe climb out of just 'ok.' I would pass on this one.
Yummy! The casserole lasted my husband and I 3 dinners! The repeated baking dried it out somewhat but still yummy. It's perfect for us -- I am a mushroom fan and my husband a chickpea fan. I didn't have fusilli, so I used elbow macaroni. I also added nutritional yeast flakes.
