Reviews forTuna Noodle Casserole for Two
"This was a really good tuna casserole recipe. I used a little extra salt and pepper because of the comments about blandness, and I found it very tasty. I ended up buying 2 Bumble Bee Premium Albacore Tuna in Water pouches (2.5 oz each). I found this was the best solution to the change in tuna can sizes. This was the first time I had tried the pouches and I wasn't sure about the drained weight since it wasn't marked on the package. As it turns out, there was no excess water to drain off so I used 5 oz in the casserole. For anyone who is interested, the pouches are a little more expensive at $1.89 each at Kroger."
"easy enough to make. I did add a little garlic powder and used seasoned salt instead of table salt because it looked like it could be bland with just salt and pepper. I also mixed the corn flake crumbs with a tbsp of melted butter."
"A friend made this for me when I was sick. It was good, but too bland."
"It was to bland, the tuna got lost."
"I've made this several times - DS loves it! I used toasted seasoned bread crumbs instead of crushed cornflakes for the topping."
"That would be great if you could post it andrewsprincess."
"Andrewsprincess, could you please post your tuna noodle casserole recipe! I would love to see it - our family enjoys tuna noodle casseroles! Thanks so much!"
"I have a great recipe from my sister if anyone would like it I'll post it"
"I have made a similar tuna noodle casserole but topped it with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese instead of the crushed cornflakes. Either way it is good."
"I have fixed tuna cassrole for many years only I used cream of mushroom soup and milk, no peas or flour and crumbled potatoe chips on top to brown. Karen Nichols from Hutchinson, KS"
