    I made this recipe but replaced second can of tuna with 1/2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese and used 1 cup of bread crumbs lightly buttered for the topping. My family found it delicious. It will be my go to recipe for tuna noodle casserole. Delicious the second night as well.

    Sorry, followed recipe but this wasn't well received by family.

    This was the best tuna noodle casserole we've had in a long time! I've made this several times since I first found it 8 months ago. The only changes we make is omitting the pimentos. Wisking the roux in with a dab of milk helps. Constantly wisking as you add in the liquid is my trick to keep it from clumping up. What a wonderful comfort food for a cold night. Thanks!

    I wondered the same thing as another reviewer - which was what is there to thicken with a can of condensed soup (step 10) so what I did was to add about 3/4 of a cup of milk to the butter/flour/salt/pepper which quickened up thickly. I removed from heat and stirred in the undiluted soup (I used cream of celery), and about a half a cup of sour cream- instead of the full cup of sour cream called for. I also used peas instead of pimentos. A good, but not outstanding, tuna casserole.
