    Excellent! <br/>I didn't have all the ingredients I wanted so I improvised. I used this basic recipe with the following changes and both my husband and I loved this. We are definitely going to make it again.<br/>Changed 1/4 c. onions to 1/2 c.<br/>Used fat free milk.<br/>Used light mayo.<br/>Didn't have any mushrooms so I didn't use them. Would have if I had them.<br/>Added 1/4 t. cayenne.<br/>Added 3/4 SMALL can of green chiles<br/>Used whole wheat bread crumbs and sauteed them quickly in 1 T. of Smart Balance Heart Healthy Light spread.<br/>Loved the recipe and thanks for sharing it. Also, if I had had some frozen peas or green pepper I would have added one of them. I was just out of a lot of things.

    I basically followed this recipe...Sort of lol. First I doubled it for a 9x13 pan. Used my condensed version of recipe #18803 in place of the cans of soup, and homemade soymilk instead of the regular due to a milk allergy. Threw in a bag of frozen broccoli and a few shakes of cayenne just to add a little zip. Discovered I was out of panko so I used some leftover unseasoned cornbread stuffing to cover it (without the butter). It came out very creamy, and didn't have that strange warm mayo flavor that a lot of tuna casseroles have. Will definitely make again, it's a great lunch on a cold winter day. Thanks Abbey!

    Best Tuna Casserole we've had. The flavors go together so well. DH does not eat mushrooms, so left out the mushrooms and replaced cream of mushroom with the recipe on this site for cream of chicken, which I reconstituted with evaporated skim instead of water. As that was still rather thin, I did not add the milk called for in this recipe- and will add at least 1/2 cup of it next time. Also used onion powder in place of the onion (1/4 cup being such a small amount, I didn't think it would matter). Mixed the whole thing up in the casserole dish. Put the breadcrumbs on top and sprayed with "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray. We also used only 1 can of tuna. Delicious.

    Very easy and tasty! I only used 6 oz of tuna because we're not huge fans of tuna. With the onions and garlic, you couldn't even taste the fishy flavor. Will definately make again.
