I fixed this last night and my husband raved about and went back for seconds. I love casseroles this time of year and it makes great lunch for the next day. I gave it a 4 star review only because it was a bit on the dry side. So I’ve added another can of soup and sour cream and it came out great. I’d make it again for family gatherings. I didn’t have any green peppers so I used sweet snacking peppers. I also didn’t have any can tuna so I used canned chicken.

This was delicious! It got a thumbs up from everyone at the table and has been added into the monthly rotation of meals. The only things I altered were that I used regular condensed soup and regular sour cream....nothing low/reduced fat. Dont underestimated the importance of the peppers (I used green bell)....the slight bitterness from the pepper plays an important role in the overall flavor! It really helps to balance the sour cream and the cheese.

Best tuna casserole recipe yet. I used fresh spinach instead of peas because it's what I had.

My husband's favorite but I use fresh tuna.....cooked before I put the casserole together. It is awesome!

Delicious!! I am not typically a tuna fish fan although I do enjoy a tuna salad sandwich once in while, but this recipe is really good!

My family enjoyed this recipe. I doubled it so I used 1 can of the cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. Added peas, carrots and chopped celery. Topped it off with crushed Ritz crackers. They say it's a keeper!

This is a great improvement to the traditional 'soup label' recipe. Would have given 5 stars if they would quit with the low fat stuff. If someone needs to restrict their diet they know how, meanwhile leave us others to enjoy the benefits of 'real' soup, sour cream, and tuna. That 'low fat' equates to 'low taste'. I used traditional ingredients and it is very good.

I wanted to up my tuna noodle casserole game from the standard, back-of-the-soup can recipe and this recipe delivered and then some! I used regular cream of mushroom soup, light sour cream, celery in lieu of peppers (because it was all I had on hand), sauteed the celery and onions and then topped it off with crushed potato chips and mozzarella cheese in lieu of the breadcrumb topping (because I wanted to use them up). I also cut back on the noodles to be a little more than 4 cups. All in all, it was super creamy and had an amazing flavor with very little extra effort on my part...no going back to soup-can-casserole for this me!
