My sister came for dinner and I made this. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of the celery but otherwise followed the recipe. Great comfort meal served up with some fresh baked rolls!

I used low sodum cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of celery and I loved the flavor of the mushrooms in the casserole. It brings me back in time to my childhood when days were simple and fun. It put a smile on my face and my grandchildren loved it too!

Well, I was very apprehensive. Last time I had tuna casserole ... was not a good experience. It was excellent. A couple of notes. I used frozen peas, so not need to boil them the last 5 minutes. I just mixed the frozen peas in the the sauce and noodles. They thaw is just a minute. But using fresh, that would be different. Second, I tasted the sauce, and the soup even though I used low salt, didn't have too much flavor. So, plenty of black pepper, and a little fresh parsley; and, I garnished with some fresh scallions for a little onion flavor. But, that being said - it did NOT change the overall flavor of the casserole. It was very good. I just like a little more seasoning is all. It changed my mind to the tuna casserole myth. I really enjoyed it. My friend (I made him a pan too) for helping with my plumbing issues. They absolutely loved it and asked for the recipe. Really easy, really nice, really delicious!!
