You can substitute crab, lobster, salmon, chicken or turkey for the tuna with equal results.
This basic recipe has so many variations that it is difficult to describe them all. If you don't have celery, use all onion, and vice versa. Broccoli can be substituted for the peas. Chicken or clam broth can be used instead of water or milk. Any canned or cooked seafood can be substituted for the tuna, and it also works with leftover or canned poultry. Some folks like to add cheese to the sauce or as a topping. Low-fat, low-calorie, and/or low-salt products may be used with equal success. Feel free to modify to suit your own tastes.

Kid and mushroom hater friendly! 15 minutes to prepare.
In the summer we have this cold or, in the winter, I put it in the microwave and warm it up.
This serves 2 adults and 1 kid, or double it for 2 adults and 3 kids.
Source: Give the credit to my kids and husband who hate cream of mushroom soup in the tuna casserole recipe. This is like a tuna melt casserole.

One box of mac and cheese, one can of cream of chicken soup, 2 cans tuna (drained well), one can peas with carrots (drained well), salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, milk and butter/margarine.
Cook the mac noodles and drain well. In a large bowl, mix the cheese powder that came with the mac and cheese, the can of soup, and one can of milk. You can add the butter/margarine in the amount on the mac and cheese label if you like. Stir all of these well, then add the seasonings to taste. Then mix in the tuna and peas/carrots.
Pour all into a greased casserole dish. If desired, top with well crushed saltine crackers or corn flakes cereal.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, till bubbly and topping is golden.
You can add canned mushrooms, corn, green beans, etc, whatever your family likes. The soup can be any of the cream soups, even the low salt or low fat types.
Here's how I've always made it and sometimes add half of a 4 ounce can of diced jalapenos or diced green chilies to spice it up ;-)
1 can Condensed Cream of Celery Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 cup celery, finely diced
2 (5 ounce) cans water packed tuna, drained
8 oz egg noodles
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded, more for topping if desired
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cook pasta al dente according to package directions, drain, and mix with the other ingredients in a baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes.
I boil egg noodles, drain, and in the same pan, add cream of mushroom soup, milk and two cans of tuna and a half bag of frozen peas, pour into a glass baking dish and top with crushed potato chips. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or so until bubbly and chips are slightly browned. Enjoy.
