Made it and made my own roux as others suggested. Also skipped pimentos and added cappers instead. Was delicious and will definitely make it again.

A delicious, traditional casserole. You could easily swap out soup for a roux as some reviewers have suggested, but you'll miss out on the simplicity of this recipe. There are many healthy versions of canned soup these days to chose from. I also would double the tuna, but I can also see trading tuna for leftover diced baked ham.

Nightfall I couldn't agree with you more! Those condensed creamed "soups" should be banned.

Why on earth do you use that awful canned soup?? It’s full of sodium and all kinds of additives. It takes just a few minutes to and costs pennies make a roux, and everyone has flour, oil/butter, and milk or stock in their pantry. Sauté some onion and celery in butter, add 1 tablespoon of flour, cook for a few minutes while stirring. Then add milk or stock and cook until it just reaches the boil and thickens. Then proceed with the rest of the recipe, which is excellent.

Really easy, I love that the pasta doesn’t have to be pre-cooked. The only change I made was using regular egg noodles. Perfect weeknight meal! Delicious!??

This is wonderful as written, but I like it even better using chicken in place of the tuna. I needed to take a dish for a potluck and knew some had seafood allergies, so decided to swap out a can of chicken for the tuna. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and doubled the tuna/or chicken. Lynne, TOH Volunteer Food Editor
