Patrice's notes for this recipe:
I found this JAP orphan. It is summer-like in contrast to my soup based tuna casserole. The slices of zucchini and celery lighten it up! We liked it a lot and I would make it again, especially during the summer.

I finally got around to trying this recipe I found as an JAP orphan.
We found it to be lighter, more summery, than my old standby tuna casserole that uses a can of mushroom soup as the base.
