  3. mary lynn thl.compso says:

    My family loves this

  4. I have to try this one! I would love to have your best tuna casserole recipe also.

  5. I make the same thing but instead of sour cream I use ricotta cheese

  6. Mom used to fix something similar to this but it didn’t have any cheese or mushrooms in it. And instead of cracker crumbs on top, she used cornflakes! I may have to try this, sounds yummy!

  7. linda martin says:

    wonder if you could substitute chicken for tuna

  8. Wonder if it would be ok to omit the sour cream? My husband doesn’t like the flavor of sour cream.

  9. Made this last night. My Hubby went back for seconds! (Good hit!) I loved it!

  10. I like to put chopped waterchessnuts in this, a little bit of extra crunch

  11. This reminds me of my Granny’s recipe. Yummy. Thank you for posting. I look forward to trying this. 🙂

    I made the Chicken Noodle casserole tonight for dinner….realized I was almost out of cheddar cheese, so I improvised! I had some mozzarella and parmesan….just combined them all! I have to let you know, my hubby is sooooo picky and NEVER eats seconds! I mean NEVER!!!! He had two servings, so I’m guessing it was a big hit!!! Thanks for sharing!!! Blessings for a beautiful, happy & healthy 2013!!!

    Thanks!
