    This is good and simple (as the name implies)! I used wheat "egg" noodles, 1/4 c Miracle Whip Light, skim mik, 5 oz tuna, and 2% cheddar. This changed the nutritionals to 215 cal, 6 g fat.. Next time I might want to add peas or some other veggie. - 5/13/09

    This was delish!!! I made it for supper last night. Leftovers are not usually my favorite thing, but this just might change my mind. I used the healthy request soup, light mayo and skim milk. I didn't have egg noodles so I used twirls instead and it came out great! - 1/21/09

    Very good! I accidently added two cups of cheese instead of one, which made it way too cheesy--next time I'll make sure how much cheese is in the bag! I also threw in a can of sliced mushrooms. I'll definitely make this one again. - 5/7/09

    One of my favourites! I made it with ww pasta and 2 cans of tuna (hubby always likes me to add an extra can to these types of recipes) and fat free milk. Also, it's easy for my toddlers to eat, so they like that. - 2/9/09

    Made this recipe adding celery, frozen peas, FF sour cream,healthy choice soup, and lower fat velveeta, with a sprinkle of Panko bread crumbs on top.I used 5 cups of dry pasta shells and made a large casserole dish. A one cup serving is very filling, and only 5 Weight Watcher points. - 10/15/10

    This was the best Tuna Casserole I've had in a long time. Like other folks, I lightened it a bit with low-fat cheese, skim milk, and light Mayo (don't like Miracle Whip unfortunately). It was superb! Even my husband loved it! Thanks so much for sharing this. - 7/14/10

    We loved this! I'm not a huge fan of fish, but I like tuna occasionally. My husband enjoyed it, too! I used Healthy Request COM soup, 2% Velveeta, and light mayo and added some dried parsley. Very good, very filling, and very satisfying for a large portion. - 3/4/09

  • I used cream of cheddar instead of cream of mushroom (we HATE mushrooms). Used 10 oz. drained canned tuna. Added 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1 can drained green peas (10.75 oz.) & black pepper. Reduced amount of milk due to initially forgetting to add it; used 2% milk. We like it; I'll make it again. - 7/27/14

I took out the mayo and used Daisy sour cream light (40 cal per serving), used fat free skim milk, 98% fat free Campbell's cream of chicken soup, and 2% Velveeta...

    I'll stick with my own recipe - it's similar, but has fewer calories, less fat, and has some other ingredients that give it a flavor and nutrition boost. A little more prep, but well worth it. - 4/18/09
