I made this basic recipe but used Vital Choice Tuna. The very best and safest tuna available.Did not use the soup as i don't use canned soups...too many additives. Make my own cream sauce with a vaariety of wild mushrooms. I also use 1 quarter cup of dry Sherry. I also add a couple of tablespoons of chopped green wild olives. Freshly ground pepper and Celtic salt. I used the Land Of Lakes cheese...Swiss not low fat. There is little difference in the to as to cholesterol levels so going natural is the thing to do. I also add a cup of Leeks, white part only sauteed along with the mushrooms. Sprinkled the top with purple potato shreds for color and a lot of potassium.Wonderful served with chilled frisee salad and a very good Pinot.
I eliminated the peas and bell peppers, doubled the amount of Land O Lakes cheese and substituted french fried onions, which I sprinkled over the top for the last ten minutes of cooking time, for the potato sticks. We absolutely LOVE this recipe!!!
FABULOUS comfort dish. Quite yummy. This one definitely goes into my "Tried and True" recipe book.
It was really good! Have made it to recipe and a few different ways. Don't need to add extra salt - tuna has enough. Substitute whole wheat egg noddles or mix whole wheat egg noddles with regular egg noodles to get more fiber. Add LOL low fat or fat free sour cream or LOL yogurt to cut calories. Another idea for a great topper but adds the calories- melt 2 TBS LOL butter, add equal parts bread crumbs and grated parmesan or asiago cheese and top casserole. Hope these ideas help you enjoy as much as my family does!

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
