"This speedy recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember," shares Betty Bernat of Littleton, New Hampshire. "Because it relies on pantry staples, it's easy to make when you can't decide what to fix for dinner," At 48 cents a serving, it's economical besides."

Great quick and easy meal that is very tasty. Oh, it is so good!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2011

This is great, and I usually make it with shredded chicken and sometimes put frozen peas in at the end instead of green peppers in beginning as recipe says. Good over rice, and I love that this is one of those recipes where I really do have all of the ingredients on hand most all the time.

This is a great quick recipe. I often use shrimp instead of tuna.

MY REVIEW

This was exactly what I was looking for! It was inexpensive, healthy, filling, and tasted like it was cooked all day instead of the 10 minutes it actually took to make!
