Hi: Just read your recipe and though it sounds good, I have a tuna casserole recipe that is richer by far (i.e. likely more calories!) but much, much tastier. I don't make a white sauce, just use evaporated milk mixed with cheddar cheese soup, PLUS extra grated Cheddar. I add W. sauce, garlic, Dijon and lots of pepper.
I cook in a homeless shelter and the women LOVE this mixture, even those who don't normally like pasta, eat it and rave about it.
