This is the quickest tuna casserole ever! You can also 'fancy it up' by transferring it to a baking dish, topping it with fried onions, and broiling it for a few minutes.

Yummy! So simple and delicious to make. On a side note, for those who have families not into tuna, I suggest substituting cream of chicken for the mushroom soup and already baked chicken chunks for tuna. Read More

good recipe,but i added a little twist to it that my german grandmother always used with her tuna recipes..i added all the ingrediants together but i peeled and cored one large apple(i use golden)and diced it,adding it to the casserole.apples and tuna go wonderful together,can also use in your tuna salad.

I love this recipe! My husband was very skeptical because he only likes his best friend's moms tuna casserole and he thought this was just a quick fix kind of dinner. When he tried it he was very amazed. I make it atleast once every two weeks and everytime he always raves about it. I love it my self. I get home at 6 and need to give my daughter a bath and do some laundry and the dishes and blah blah blah and this recipe is super great to fix on those busy nights (which is every night for me)! Love it, Love it, Love it! Read More

My fiancee watched in horror as I cooked this up, thinking it would be too artificial. He took a bite, then wolfed it all down. Now he's the one making it all the time- he memorized the recipe instantly. Add capers to zest it up. mmmm Read More

I was pleasantly surprised. I think next time I'll cut the cream of mush in half but overall it was a good recipe. My fiance' was skeptical but once he tried it he was a believer. I didn't have French fried onions (not a fan of them) so I used panko and put in the oven just instill the top started getting golden. Read More

As another reviewer remarked why didn't I think of this? On a college budget I have plenty of tuna mac n' cheese soup and canned veggies. I followed the recipe (including the fried onions) and - wow! Cheap easy and best of all delicious! Read More

This recipe surprised me. I wasn't expecting much out of it but made it because I had all of the ingredients in my cupboard...and it was actually really good! My husband didn't care much for it but I thought it was fantastic and was even happier because it has less fat and calories than most tuna and noodle casserole. This is going in my recipe box Read More

This is the perfect working Mom's dinner - it's fast easy not too many ingredients and really yummy. Even my very picky four year old liked it (only had one serving but she cleaned her plate!). I just made it all on the stove in one big pot and added some fried onions to the top of mine and my husband's - really good. Will definitely make again:) Read More
