“My family used to complain when I made tuna casserole,” remarks Jean Centers of Crittenden, Kentucky. “So one day, I added shredded mozzarella cheese to the dish, and they loved it! Now, that’s the only way I make it.”
"After a busy day of bookkeeping for our family contracting business, I count on this rapid recipe my mother passed along to me," relates Nancy Adams of Hancock, New Hampshire. "I double it if I need to feed unexpected guests who stop by at mealtime."
Mushrooms, green peppers and onion are added to boxed macaroni and cheese in this comforting take on the classic tuna bake. "It is a delicious, hearty and quick-to-fix dinner," writes Helen Suter from Golconda, Illinois. "I serve it with a tossed salad and hot rolls."
I love to serve this dressed-up version of a tuna casserole. The green beans add nice texture, color and flavor. The first time I made this dish, my uncle asked for seconds even though tuna casseroles are not usually his favorite.
