Reviews for Cheesy Tuna Lasagna
"My son (age 21) and I love this recipe. Very flexible, depending on what's in the pantry! I have prepared this dish numerous times and had excellent results using canned Alfredo sauce, and a popular name brand Basil and Parmesan recipe starter sauce (reduce or omit oregano). I always use oven-ready noodles (convenience)! Just one tip: add tuna to sauce AFTER spreading 3/4 c. sauce in the bottom of the pan so the noodles will lie flat. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
"The lasagna was a nice change of pace. Family enjoyed it. I felt it tasted better the next day after flavors had a chance to meld."
"Big hit with the family, especially my five year old daughter!"
"I doubled the recipe using a can of mushroom soup with a can of cream of celery soup. I sauted a cup or more of chopped celery along with the onion. It smelled great cooking and my family all enjoyed it. I'll make this again."
