Condensed cream of asparagus soup is a flavor that goes well with tuna. Other possible flavors would be cream of celery or a neutral flavor soup such as cream of chicken soup.

To measure milk, pour the soup into the casserole dish, then fill the empty can with water.

Spinkle on top more grated cheese, breadcrumbs or pangrattato.

You can replace tuna with a can of cooked chicken or shredded left over chicken breasts.
