When you need supper fast, this tuna casserole with peas, peppers and onions makes a super meal-in-one. Cooked chicken breast works well in place of the tuna. —Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah

I was looking for a real comfort food type recipe and this did not disappoint. This was a real keeper. I did use potato chips and French fried onions as a topping. Thank you for the recipe

It was just OK. Not a lot of flavor. I liked the crunch of the green pepper but celery would have been good too.

I personally didn't care for this; felt the flavor was quite bland. Husband liked it which is the only reason I rated 3* otherwise would have been 2 for me.

I used the basic recipe, but had to make a couple of substitutions. I used wheat noodles, made my own cream of mushroom soup and added chives and celery to it. I used 3 cans of tuna since the cans are smaller, used broccoli since I didn't have peas, and my husband doesnt' like green peppers. I toasted two slices of wheat bread to make the topping. I didn't tell him it was a healthy recipe until he told me it tasted great!!! I agree, this is a keeper. It looked like it might be dry after baking it, but it was perfect. Very filling, and so nice to eat it, knowing the calorie and fat grams are at a healthy level Thank you Edie!
