  1. This is one of the best tuna casseroles I've made! I left out the onion (personal pref) and used the optional red pepper and cheddar (on top). I was trying to use stuff from the pantry so I used some penne pasta that I had, plus a handful of noodles. This is so creamy and flavorful, and so quick to make from ingredients I always have on hand. Thanks for posting this great recipe! Made for the Best of 2008 event
  2. My husband and I both loved this casserole! I made tuna casserole once in a blue moon, but may make it more now! Thanks for a delicious dish! Made for PRMR game.
  3. I really enjoyed this. The mayonnaise and cream cheese gave it a really tasty creamy flavour without going over the top. I have lots left over in the fridge for lunch today!
  4. We all loved this tuna casserole. This morning we were fighting over who got to take the leftovers for lunch today. I used all the ingredients except I didn't have the cream cheese when it finally came to making it so I just used an extra cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese. I added some garlic powder for personal taste. The topping of cheese with bread crumbs really added a wonderful finish.
  5. My son just went back for seconds....YUM! I love that this casserole does not use any canned soups. This is the tuna casserole recipe that I will use from now on! Thanks!
