Love this recipe!  So, so easy and quick.  Make sure though to put the noodles in last as the directions say...tastes better that way.  And i add lots of veggies too like grated carrots and sliced mushrooms and garlic.  I cook them while the noodles are cooking and then stir them in when i add the noodles to the other ingredients.  Oh, and I use cream of some kind of veggie soup with veggie bouillon.

I am a bumbling chef, but I still had no problem with this and bonus, it makes enough extra to freeze.  And it handles Freezing very well.  Pull one  out that been in frinde for 4 weeks and it was still tasty!  I always double up the recipt as I cant find cream cheese in 4 oz.  Mostly cause I like to keep frige empty and freezer full :). 

We've made some changes!  No-Bake Tuna Casserole is now called Stovetop Tuna Casserole.  We also adjusted the ingredients slightly to remove the cream cheese which removes some of the calories from fat.

I have a dairy allergy but wanted to try this recipe. A coworker gave me home canned tuna, and I'd never had that or tuna casserole before, so I went for it. I made cashew cream by blending soaked cashews in hot water in my high speed blender. I added soy milk, and all the other ingredients. I also used gluten free pasta. This recipe was delicious!! My almost 2 year old has been loving it, and we both had seconds and thirds. I highly approve of it!
