"This is a great recipe for tuna casserole. The next time I make, I will saute the onions first before adding. I also added some cheddar cheese. I used fresh mushrooms. It was wonderful. I will make it many times."

"Joyce...re your question about other possible seasonings. I make a similar tuna casserole without the dill or horseradish. I add shredded cheddar cheese and use cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom. I also add 2 shakes of Tabasco which you will never notice, but it enhances other favors."

"I followed the recipe except I omitted the horseradish because when I went to pick it up "hot" and "extremely hot" was on every bottle. And my stomach can't handle "hot" stuff. It came out bland. So I don't think I'll be making this again until I figure out what seasoning to add to add some taste. I did learn a new trick from this recipe though. Bread crumbs and butter for a crispy topping. So it wasn't a total loss. Any cooks out there have any seasoning suggestions?"
