"My husband enjoys cooking just as much as I do," reports Joanne Callahan of Far Hills, New Jersey. "One night he tossed together this comforting casserole from meager ingredients we had in our cupboard. It turned out to be the best-tasting tuna casserole I have ever had! Swiss cheese flavors the noodles nicely."

"Delicious and super quick. Sometimes simple is better! I did add some spices - pepper, parsley and dried onion, but it would have been good without it! I think I may hold out some cheese to put over the top next time, but that's just a preference thing - I like how the cheese makes the crumbs extra crispy! Thanks for the recipe."

"This is to the reviewer angeldjac. How can you be so insensitive and hurtful!

Just because you didn't like this doesn't mean someone else won't think it's delicious.The wife of the maker loved it... I have never had a tuna casserole without cheese!!!"

"YUCK!! Terrible taste! Never mix fish with cheese and way too many breadcrumbs! Can we give it a minus number of stars?"
