I was tired of the same old tuna casserole, so I combined a couple of recipes. I like mine with a lot of black pepper. My mother likes hers with cream of celery soup instead of mushroom. Good served with garlic bread and a salad. Even my roommate likes this and he doesn't eat any kind of fish.

This scrumptiously decadent recipe takes tuna casserole to a whole other plane... a must-try! Super creamy, we loved the vegetable mixture. The cheesy and crunchy topping takes this easy dinner over the top. We guarantee everyone will love this tuna casserole.

    HINT: I have also used pepper jack cheese in this instead of the cheddar and it's great if you like spice. I have had the suggestion of adding another can of tuna to this because with all the other flavors the tuna flavor is not very strong. To each his own.
