This dish is so easy to fix, and the flavor is better than any tuna helper I've ever tried. It was a staple when I was in college since a box of macaroni and cheese and a can of tuna cost so little. —Suzanne Zick, Osceola, Arkansas

"This is the third recipe I have made from Taste of Home with incomplete or incorrect instructions. It says, "Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package directions". Well, the package says to use 1/4 cup of milk, and also margarine. Yet margarine is not in the list of ingredients in the recipe! So, do I add margarine an additional 1/4 cup of milk? I decided not to. Luckily, it turned out well."

"This is an awesome recipe!!! I made this for dinner tonight and the flavors were amazing. Of course i added a few extra things. I sauteed some portabello mushrooms, onions & minced garlic together and sprinkled with a Lil garlic powder. I also doubled the recipe. But instead i used 1 can of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom. I also mixed together with Jack Colby cheese and sprinkled the top with Sharp Cheddar was Deeelicious!!!!! Thanks for your ideas.."

"With Lent underway, I am always looking for new recipes. I made this tonight, was very yummy. I will admit that I used some improvising though. I used mushroom soup instead of celery, chopped some fresh mushrooms, and spread a layer of bread crumbs on top before baking. Loved the little extra crunch! I will make this again."

"Been in a dinner rut lately and needed some inspiration...made this with some modifications. Used the boxed mac n cheese but didn't have the cream of celery so I made a cup of white sauce and threw in some diced celery and a sprinkle of celery seed. Also added 2 chopped hard bolied eggs some diced onion and mixed a handful of shredded cheddar into noodle and tuna mix. Topped with crumbled potato chips. Yummo! Add-ins are endless. Will be making this again!"
