You can use tuna packed in water, however, I think tuna in oil adds a depth of flavor that can't be beat!
One lovely thing about this dish is its versatility!  The recipe is for a basic and easy tuna casserole, but feel free to add some chopped onion and celery that has been lightly sautéed to the mixture if you like!  You can also substitute other cream of soups such as cream of jalapeno.  Enjoy!
