Some of you need to get over this nutrition thing. Quite honestly it really isn't all that high fat. If you are so concerned about fat and sodium, use the alternative soups they have out there that are low in these things and give it a rest.

Sorry, but this recipe contains too much fat and sodium, and is not special enough to deviate from a healthy diet. A better swap could be 4 oz whole wheat pasta, steamed fresh or frozen veggies, 2 cans drained tuna, and 1 or 2 oz of low fat cheese, melted, with a little fat free milk or soy milk to make it less thick and more saucy. Then top with a few crushed, baked chips, or toasted and crumbed low-calorie, high-fiber bread.

It was good & easy to make. a little on the dry side. Probably would add more soup & milk to it next time.

Too many calories the way you make it.For ONE person, don't need potato soup; use fat free milk. don't need a bag of veggies; use a portion and keep rest frozen for another dish;; and like another reader said - skip butter. I don't make things that are calorie and fat laden. I know - you are in the business of selliing products. EW

I substituted canned Salmon and sprinkled heavily with grated cheese~ was a big hit! My kids LOVED it~

Since no one in my family will eat hot tuna, I substituted sauteed chicken breast cubes (I used 2 boneless chicken breasts). I followed the rest of the recipe exactly as written. I did not have fresh bread crumbs, so I substituted herb stuffing mix which I added the 2 T. of melted butter to. This was a big hit with my family and was absolutely delicious. This will definitely be a keeper. I served it with homemade biscuits.

I plan to use chicken too-homecooked grilled chicken, I think would be great and portion control is the key here as well as low sodium cream of chicken soup. I would add other veggies and have this as an entree rather than the whole meal. There's no need of being frightened of good recipes like this. My doctor says to not leave anything out of my diet that I love but eat small portions.

I use a lot of the Pillsbury recipes as a base, and tweak them to mine and my families liking. Easy to tweak this to be lower fate/sodium and not take too much extra time. If I'm cooking just for the kids, and am in a hurry, yes, I might make it as written, but I have very active kids that burn the fat, and most of our diet is low sodium, so I don't worry about it too much for an occassional meal.

I made it as set forth, using chicken. Sodium, well our government, the same that has ruined my retirement has said sodium is bad for us. Remember the Coffee scare?. This taste great, we only live once so enjoy, you do not eat this everyday, I used cream of Chicken soup. Remember Uhel Gibbons? he ate way to many pine cones and died. HA!

This sounds really good w/the veg. medley....tuna or chix would both be yummy. I am not sure why anyone would say that tuna is hard to find???? It's in EVERY grocery that I've ever been to.
Yes, there is high sodium, but IF you know that you are going to make this particular casserole then cut your sodium throughout the rest of your day. Some of you people need to get over the gov't telling you what you should or should not consume. Pillsbury is a great source for great recipes.
