I've been searching for the perfect tuna noodle casserole...this wasn't perfect...I'm still looking...but overall this was pretty good and until I find the perfection I am looking for I would probably make this again

Didn't have corn flakes, so put French fried onion rings on top-delicious!

This dish was fabulous! I'm not a fan of mushrooms so I added celery instead. It gave a nice touch to the recipe with a slight crunch. I also added onion powder as opposed to dried onion flakes. Maybe that gave it a bit more flavor? I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Easy and delicious!

A must try! I read the reviews before doing this recipe and a couple of reviews negative. Hesitant I went ahead and tried this recipe and what a hit! My husband (who doesn't like things healthy) loved this dinner. Very closed to the taste of the original recipe. I will make this again.

Light, super easy to make, and yummy. Pack it for lunch to work or serve at dinner for your loved ones. This is not fine cuisine, but a comfy, quick, yummy dish. Loved it!!
