Love thisOctober 10, 2012 By mh221088
I make this casserole frequently. I like that the recipe doesn't call for canned soup. It's easy and so tasty. I love what the bread crumbs add to the texture. I make it exactly as written, except when I don't have sharp cheddar on hand I use regular and add a bit of salt to the sauce.

A Very Tasty Tuna Casserole!March 21, 2011 By teachermrw
I made this for the first time this evening for my family. However, instead of the rice, I used broad egg noodles. I also combined extra-sharp cheddar cheese with processed American cheese slices, and combined evaporated milk with regular milk. Last, I topped off the casserole with crushed potato chips instead of bread crumbs. I didn't add peas. It was a very tasty meal. Everyone had seconds. There was hardly any casserole left.

excellent alternative use for tunaAugust 19, 2008 By EmilySprakel
This tuna rice meal is superb! As we are basil lovers I replaced the celery with fresh basil leaves, mixing it in the sauce after pouring the milk, and it was excellent. I decided to leave out the buttered bread crumbs to make the meal ""lighter"" and nobody seemed to miss anything. Using fresh tuna is a healthier option, cooking the chunk of fish in water, oil and salt for a while (just until the water boils) until it is no longer red in colour. I have saved this recipe in my 'quick and yum' file to make it again in the future. Thanks for that.

Quick, easy & tastyMay 10, 2008 By jet715
This recipe is easy and doesn't take a lot of time. It contains ingredients that you usually already have in stock, which means a lot to me, because I hate going to the store any more than I have to. The only thing I did differently was add 2 6 oz cans of tuna instead of 1 7 oz can. One can just didn't seem like quite enough. I would recommend this recipe!
