Vegetable Tuna Noodle Casserole

"Our sons really like this quick casserole because it tastes special," says Florence Munger of Malone, New York. The creamy main dish is easy to assemble with pantry items such as canned tuna, egg noodles, cream soup and pimientos.

    Very, very good! My husband said this is a keeper. I added frozen peas instead of the celery and omitted the pimentos as I had none.

    This was SO good! Usually tuna bakes are abit boring but this had tons of flavour and was really creamy. I used 2-1/2 cups of noodles, added some dill and lemon juice, and it was beautiful. Definitely making this again!

    We love this recipe! I add 1 cup of frozen peas, leave out the pimentos and bake in a 9x11 pan.

    My 3 sons like this recipe very much. It's filling and rich. I usually double it.

    I've been making this casserole for quite some time now and don't even bother to make any other tuna casserole as this one is the best. I sprinkle on some cheddar cheese at the end of baking time.

    Tuna Casserole is a fav in our house! I added a few ingredients requested by my son, 1 1/2 TBSP dried dill, 1 TBSP lemon juice, and 3 crushed garlic cloves. I was out of cheese so I didnt add, but made a cornfake/butter mix for the top the last 10 min of cooking. Yummy!!

    I don't believe someone can type 55+words and post in less than a minute.   Especially since Apollo's twin has only posted ... how many times in how long?
