  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the lasagna, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk the chicken broth and 1/2 of the milk, into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the remaining milk and 1/2 of the minced garlic.
  4. Place soda crackers in a resealable plastic bag. Finely crush the crackers, then add the Italian seasoning. Combine tuna, mixed vegetables, egg white, salt, 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup of the cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup of the flour mixture, and the remaining minced garlic in a large bowl.
  5. Spread a thin layer of the white sauce onto the prepared baking dish, followed by a layer of lasagna noodles. Spread about 1/3 of the tuna mixture over the noodles. Repeat the noodle and tuna layering three more times, topping with the remaining flour mixture. Sprinkle the pepper evenly on top of the casserole. Cover with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese and the remaining cracker crumbs. Change the oven setting to broil and return the casserole to the oven. Broil until lightly brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

The dish is excellent as is. But please don't make the same mistake I did! I decided to try an "instant" lazana noodle. It requires no boiling, just layer it in with the regular ingredients and ...

There is not enough sauce, it needs to be doubled or maybe almost tripled to prevent the noodles and the entire dish from being dry. There is way to much prep time involved in this recipe. I w...

I think this recipe has potential and I like that it doesn't use a can of soup! I made it per the recipe, and I agree with one other reviewer who said that the sauce should be doubled. My sugges...

My hubby is a tuna casserole fan. Myself, not so much. The only complaint that both of had with this recipe is that we thought it was dry. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8"x8" dish, c...

I'm only scoring this recipe 4 stars because I didn't have a couple of the ingredients (like lasagna noodles!) and so therefore I made this into a casserole instead. As a casserole dish I rate ...

Family said it's better than my aunt's.

I should have listened to the people who said it was dry. It was. Darn it. It makes a big dish too and it's dry. I don't know how to fix it and I hate to throw it away.

I cooked this for my mother and sister tonight and we all agree this is very good. Tuna casserole is one of my favorites. But this time I thought about using lasagna instead and decided to giv...

I give this four stars because I really, really liked the sauce however I made quite a few changes. I decided not to precook the lasagna noodles as a personal preference. Once my finished sauce ...
