"This was a favorite in my home growing up and now it's a favorite of my family as well. I double the recipe these days for my husband and three children. For a change of pace I add canned chopped green chilies and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, use pasta shells or spirals, or top the casserole with sliced American or cheddar cheese instead of breadcrumbs."

Rather plain and boring. However, it makes a pretty good base to add other ingredients. However, I think I'll keep searching for a better tuna casserole recipe.
