    Really good! I added leftover baked salmon filet instead of the tuna and mixed everything together rather than layering. Will definitely make this again.

    I've tried probably 4 tuna casserole recipes in the last 2 months, and this one was the best!

    This recipe is always a hit. I definitely prefer the macaroni noodles. I was out today and used penne instead but the macaroni is truly my favorite pasta. But this is a great casserole, my mom and daughter love it!

    Delicious and versatile ! Added some shredded cheddar cheese and peas, like a childhood classic with a twist. Also added some bread crumbs since I didn’t have the full amount of French onion. Soo good. Will def make again.

    This is awesome. I did substitute lump crab for the tuna and it was amazing. Also added a bit of shredded cheese on top.

    Loved it and so did the family. I didn’t include the spinach because I didn’t have any and it was still delicious. I added sugar snap peas, diced onion & chopped fresh mushrooms. I love the fried onions as a topping. It added a flavorful crunch. This one is a keeper!!

    Really good. I used Garlic Cream of Mushroom soup because it’s what I always use for recipes. I just mixed everything together instead of layering. It was fantastic! Super quick with minimal clean up. Big thumbs up.

    Sooo good - I loved it, my son did too - ate two helpings, then complained about the spinach - didn’t bother him too much I say. Will make again for sure - with spinach.
    Great! I also added some peas, and cheddar which made the dish even more wonderful.

    it was great. i substituted egg noodles for the acaroni, because I had them on hand. I wasn't quite sure how much to use. I think it was pro ably 12 oz. of egg noodles.

    This casserole was great! I would recommend some cheese perhaps Parmesan? I also added peas to mine. I also doubled the recipe.

    Great! I did modify it for items I had on hand. Instead of sour cream I used plain greek yogurt & 1/2 of a small container of ricotta cheese. Because everything including the soup was low or no fat I added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable oil to the mixture. I also add about 1/2 cup of Kraft shredded cheese with cream cheese to the mix as well! It was delicious & didn't last long!!! Mary P

    This is really good! The added spinach is a nice touch. Scales up well. The only thing I probably would have done is add more black pepper.
