Reviews for Makeover Spinach Tuna Casserole(13)

Great recipe! My family usually won't eat much tuna casserole but this one went over very well (other than 1 child picking out the spinach & said it would have been better with mushrooms instead), had no leftovers! I did alter it a bit - I used plain non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream, I omitted the bread crumbs, & I used a white cheese blend that I had instead of Parmesan. My hubby liked the crispy noodles on the sides ;)
The toping was very tasty, but laying upon plain noodles that become crispy on the bottom and side of casserole wasn't appealing.
Tuna noodle casserole is one of my favorite dishes, especially this recipe. I love the spinach and it doesn't taste low fat at all.
