    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

    If you don't have bread crumbs on hand, you could also crush crackers or chips to spread on top. This is also similar to my mom's recipe, one of my all-time favorite foods :) - 9/2/08

    This was so good!! For anyone complaining about the serving size, 1 cup was more than enough when served with a salad and veggie on the side. Just because you want more doesn't mean you need more. This is the perfect comfort food for those cold evenings. - 10/9/09

    I tried this recipe at my husbands request. I'm usually not big on this type of food. I used cream of chicken soup because I didn't have the cheese soup. It turned out fine. My husband and the rest of the family just loved it. Thanks for sharing! - 1/26/09

    Sounds good. I can not wait to try this one. My mom used to make something very similar to this for us growing up...I loved hers and I am certain I will love this. I too am a HUGE cheese lover. So anything topped, filled or sprinkled with cheese is A-OK with me!!! - 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

    This was good but I could easily leave off the bread crumbs from the top. They did not add to flavor but did add calories.

    I wonder if I could use fresh tuna instead of the canned? My hubby has to limit a lot of these ingredients. Thanks for the idea of the cream of chicken soup. I'll have to sunstitute the cheddar cheese too. With some tweaks this could work. - 10/7/09

    Too hot to turn on the stove+oven? if interested in making in microwave: 'nuke' the noodles in h2o first, w/the peas (preheat h2o in an electric kettle so even quicker), then about 7/ 10* min w/h2o+noodles+pre-thawed/ frozen* peas then, else about 15 min. Mix together & another 5-8. Omit breadcrumbs - 6/9/20

    I don't know why this recipe doesn't take advantage of low fat and low sodium condensed soups. They taste fine in this recipe. And adding bread crumbs to make it look good is just adding extra carbs. There is no need to bake this, either. Heat on stove. - 1/14/19
