“Tuna fish is always an excellent standby when you need supper on the table in a hurry. You’ll love this main-dish casserole packed with peas, peppers and onions. Not fond of tuna? Simply substitute chicken instead!” Edie DeSpain - Logan, Utah

Very creamy and filling. Also very easy to make. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

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!

MY REVIEW

This recipe was very good and it totally satisfied my craving for high fat comfort food without feeling too guilty! I will definitely be putting this in the rotation. The dish has a lot of flavor, but it does have that diet food taste to it. Just a fair warning. I may have thrown in a little more onion than what was called for and I hit it with the broiler for a few extra minutes of cooking time at the end to brown the bread crumbs. Very good!!
