Broccoli Tuna Casserole
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 1 hour
Added a few spices and more fresh broccoli than called called for of frozen. Will be made over and over again.
Made exactly as written with the exception of subbing shredded chicken for the tuna. Solid, but rather bland and needed a bit more moisture. Round two: used fresh herbs, pepper jack cheese, fresh broccoli which was pre blanched, shredded chicken, 3 minced cloves of garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and fresh red bell pepper for color. Taste testers liked version two better. I did up the milk and chicken broth a bit too. Certainly worth a try, just modify to please the tastebuds of your family or group.
Found this recipe bland. Added some blue cheese which helped a bit. won't make again.
This is a good switch from the traditional tuna casserole. All tuna casseroles that I've tried are pretty bland, and this one isn't much better in that department. I think a little seasoning added to the casserole and especially the Panko would do wonders to brighten it up a bit. I might also try substituting a little sharp cheddar for half of the Monterrey Jack to see if that helps.
Didnt have any fat free milk so used regular and used canned tuna instead of a pouch, turned out well, family went back for seconds, put some in a small casserole dish to freeze so will see how that cooks after being frozen.! Will make again
This was easy to make but I'll use more cheese next time.
I would really have given this a 3.5 if I could. I appreciated many things about this casserole--the crunchy topping, the nutritional value, and the fact that it does not use a can of creamed soup as its base. Being a Yankee transport to the South several decades ago, I have become used to flavors that are more vibrant. This one for me did not have that vibrant flavor thing going on. I would have to perhaps add a teaspoon of Cajun/Creole seasoning to make it come more alive. But of course, that's personal preference. Also, this one is not a "30-Minute Meal"--it does take time for preparation--and that's also ok if you have the time.
Going to try it. Looks fantastic!
I thought this recipe was good and overall easy to make. I think there needs to be more sauce too. At first I thought it would be soupy, but after baking the noodles soak up some sauce. Would like to try again and maybe double the sauce.
My husband hates peas, so I was hopeful about this recipe, and was interested in a recipe I could freeze for those days when I just don't feel like cooking. It was okay. Not a keeper, but worth a dinner. I agree, the noodles were a little dry and needed more sauce.
