Cheesy Tuna Lasagna

This wonderful casserole was added to my recipe collection many years ago. The tuna and three-cheese blend wins over doubters who say they aren't fond of fish.—Virginia Ferris, Lyons, Michigan

    My son (age 21) and I love this recipe. Very flexible, depending on what's in the pantry! I have prepared this dish numerous times and had excellent results using canned Alfredo sauce, and a popular name brand Basil and Parmesan recipe starter sauce (reduce or omit oregano). I always use oven-ready noodles (convenience)! Just one tip: add tuna to sauce AFTER spreading 3/4 c. sauce in the bottom of the pan so the noodles will lie flat. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    The lasagna was a nice change of pace. Family enjoyed it. I felt it tasted better the next day after flavors had a chance to meld.

    I doubled the recipe using a can of mushroom soup with a can of cream of celery soup. I sauted a cup or more of chopped celery along with the onion. It smelled great cooking and my family all enjoyed it. I'll make this again.
