Break out a family favorite: tuna casserole. The traditional comfort food is great for serving large groups. In our tuna casserole recipe, we cut the sauce with chicken broth, but there's enough milk to make this casserole feel indulgent.

    would LOVE to try to make this recipe, but the drop down video COVERS the recipe and won't go away. Massive fail.

    I love this recipe and have made it a number of times. It's very easy and, because it's relatively healthy, I feel okay about eating a casserole. I never have cream of mushroom soup on hand, but I alway have the ingredients for this. I love it with lot of extra peas.

    This recipe was tasteless. I'm so disappointed. I never used a recipe off Martha's recipe that disappointed but this one did. I kept adding salt and cheese but no luck. Boo. It'd be great if this recipe was revamped.

    I had high hopes for this recipe -- whole milk, tuna, pasta, cheese -- I was sold. This is very bland in flavor but easy to make. I had to add a lot of sriracha sauce to add flavor. This is not a keeper for me. Martha rarely disappoints but my mouth was underwhelmed.

    I just made this--very yummy. I also added chopped red pepper, celery and 2 chopped garlic cloves to sauté with the onion. And a few dashes of cayenne pepper to the sauce. I didn't have Parmesan, so I grated some cheddar (about 1/2 cup) and mixed it with the panko for the topping with 2 tbsps melted butter. I still felt like it could've used a little more zip, but it was very satisfying and everyone loved it.

    Decent. Nothing too surprising here. It is nice to not have to open a can of cream of mushroom to make a tuna casserole but this could stand to be punched up a bit.

    This was a flop for me. The lack of cheese inside the casserole (only on top), and no spices should have been a red flag. It's just pasta with a creamy sauce plus tuna. It isn't worth the surprising amount of effort the other reviewers mentioned for a casserole. But if I did have to make this again, I would add about 2 cups of shredded cheese (it sounds like a lot, but standard casseroles of this type call for more!), a dash of chili powder/pepper flakes, corn or more peas, and basil or parsley

    for as much liquid and pasta as this recipe calls for, two 6oz cans of tuna didn't seem like nearly enough. I used three 12oz cans of tuna, and added mushrooms and broccoli. It turned out hearty and satisfying and I highly recommend these revisions, upping the tuna content at the very least!

    Good recipe, nice and light. My husband appreciated that there wasn't a can of cream of mushroom soup in sight :) Should not be tagged "meatless" though LOL.

    Delicious! The only change I made was raw broccoli florets added the sauce and pasta before baking. I also added a tablespoon of Penzey's Mural of Flavor. It's even better for leftovers the next day!
