    for anyone who wants to try this dish but thinks its to high in sodium, opt for low sodium tuna in water, and low sodium soups. They are out there. This is a great recipe and its easy to adjust things like sodium, ect.. - 10/6/09

    Condensed "cheese" soup has an interesting texture and taste but it's not one of my favorites. I use 2 wedges of Laughing Cow light cheese and a little 2% milk instead. This is an easy, delicious way to use the veggies in the crisper or freezer. Really filling served with a salad. - 10/7/09

    We really liked this. We removed the bread crumbs and mushroom soup and used a little nonfat milk to make up for the loss of the soup. It was excellent. It's going to replace my usual tuna casserole recipe, as we loved the cheese sauce. - 4/8/08

    When I was growing up it was just noodles, tuna and cream of mushroom soup. I started adding things later when I learned to cook. Now mine is more veggies than noodles and I add water chestnut for a little crunch! - 10/6/09

    I will continue to use my old recipe which calls for only one can of tuna, whole wheat pasta, low-sodium, reduced fat cream of mushroom soup and reduced fat cheese. I also top it with whole wheat bread crumbs. I serve the peas on the siade for those who like them. - 10/6/09

    Perfect autumn comfort food. Use 2% or low-fat cheese, add 1/2 c. of peas or winter-blend veggies. Cauliflower goes great! Substituted ~1/3 c. 1% milk for cream of mushroom and omitted breadcrumbs, and it turned out wonderfully! Thanks for sharing. - 10/6/09

    any canned cream mushroom soup taste horrible and i would never use any. make a simple cream sauce using 1 T melted butter mixed with equal amount of flour (1 T), stir into a paste and slowly add 1 c milk. heat and stir until thick. add mushrooms. great simple and delicious sauce. - 2/21/13

    Using commercial soups is not the healthy choice. I make a basic white sauce; which I turn into mushroom sauce and another for a cheese sauce. There is never a need to use store bought soups unless you are crunching time. Too much sodium even in reduced options. Poor rating as unhealthy meal. - 8/20/12

    This was tasty, but I thought it had too many calories (at least for such a small serving - I know I'd be hungry later). I omitted the cheese entirely, halved the amount of bread crumbs (used Italian style) and added an onion. It was great! The soups do a great job of making the dish creamy! - 7/25/12

    ANY "cream of" soup works in this basic recipe.Even cream of tomato. But high sodium is a problem with Campbell's regular "cream of" soups. I saute up some celery and onion, and use cream of celery soup in mine. Any way to add extra vegetables... Pimiento for color is nice. - 8/20/12
