"So tasty, like it has cheese sauce or dairy. I serve this with a salad on the side. This is a personal recipe I created."

"This was delicious! I can't have dairy, so this was excellent! It felt good to make tuna casserole from scratch. I usually make the tuna helper...lol. My husband I don't like mushrooms, so I substituted a cup of celery. I will definitely make this again."
"Yum!! My husband is very picky when it comes to gluten-free dishes and he loved this. He got thirds! I did make two substitutions to accommodate my daughter's food allergies (egg, wheat, and dairy). I used Quinoa pasta and substitute the mayonnaise with Grapeseed oil Veganiase."
"This recipe is amazing! I have actually used the sauce to make a GFDF Tator Tot casserole as well, and it was so good my family requested it two nights in a row. Thank you for giving this GFDF girl some real comfort food!"
"We had this for dinner tonight. Both kids have deemed it "yummy!" My husband says that this is even better than my old recipe, which was full of cream soup, milk and cheese. Since I developed a dairy allergy I've been really missing tuna casserole! I had to make a few changes to accommodate what I had - I used regular wheat tri-color fusilli, ordinary lite mayo instead of olive oil, and I used a dozen saltines crushed on top instead of bread crumbs. Oh, and I used vegetable broth because that's what I had in the fridge. Next time we make this (and there will be many next times), I'm going to saute some diced celery with the onion and mushroom!"
"I was looking for a GFDF variation of the classic tuna casserole that I fondly remember from when I could eat gluten and dairy. This recipe is it! It exceeded my expectations of a mere reasonable facsimile, and I dare say it's better than the "regular" version! I made a couple minor changes, adding 1/4 c.nutritional yeast flakes to the sauce and a teaspoon of Tabasco sauce. I also omitted the bread crumbs and used no-salt crushed potato chips on top instead. Yum! Thanks for the great recipe. Definitely a keeper!"
"I joined just to write a review on this recipe! It was fabulous! I recently had to go dairy free for my nursing baby. I did change a few things...we do not have a gluten allergy so I used whole wheat penne pasta, I put 1 cup of peas instead of 1/2 cup and 1 cup of onions instead of 1/2 cup. I topped with panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs. Wow, it was awesome. My husband and I both went back for seconds. This recipe is better than other recipes with cheese. The sauce in this is to die for! Thanks for a great meal option!"
"This recipe was fantastic!!! I feel that I am very picky when it comes to my gluten free/ dairy free food and this tasted delicious! I did do a few things differently .. I used veganaise for the "mayo" and I also put 1 cup of Daiya (dairy free cheese) in with the mushroom mixture and it was SO GOOD! highly reccomend it :)"
"This recipe is a miracle! I needed something that was wheat-free, dairy-free, and egg-free for my picky toddler. I used fake mayo to make it egg-free, and I used Tinyada brown rice noodles (partially cooked first) to make it wheat-free. This was seriously delicious! I'm wondering if I could also use the mayo trick to make a decent chicken pot pie; every time I try to make one with rice milk or almond milk, it comes out too watery. This mixture for the tuna casserole thickened right up and it tasted like the real thing. I used canned salmon instead of tuna because I try to limit my daughter's tuna intake. It was still awesome. I also added chopped celery because another reviewer mentioned it and it sounded like a good idea. I will definitely make this again, and I will share it with all of my friends!"
"Pretty darn good for a dairy free recipe. I did not make this gluten and soy free, but we are dairy free due to a family food allergy. The only thing I think I will try to change next year is to add a small jar of pimentos. I feel like the dish could benefit from the sweetness and this would also make it more colorful."
"I am about to try a variation of this... but just wanted to say that the Olive Oil Mayo bought in stores isn't soy-free. Soybean oil is used more than the Olive in the recipe. FYI :)"
"Very tasty and fun to make. The only changes I made were the use of brown rice flour, wheat pasta, light mayo, and homemade breadcrumbs recipe #392730 because I had them on hand. Thanks, UmmBinat! Made for Aussie New Zealand Make My Recipe tag game."
