Reviews for Macaroni Tuna Casserole
"this was beyond disgusting. made exactly as written and the whole thing ended up in the trash! what a waste of money."
"Great recipe !"
"I found this recipe almost 20 years ago in a Taste of Home magazine. I have made it numerous times over the years. If you like tuna casserole you are sure to enjoy this."
"@ Alfoa - Whenever a recipe says to prepare according to package directions, it means to use the ingredients on the package and prepare like the box says to. The recipe usually does NOT include those ingredients or measurements, unless it specifically says so. So, in this case, you would use 1/4 cup milk, margarine, and the 1/2 cup milk called for in this recipe ingredients list. With this particular recipe, it wouldn't matter..you can make with a little less milk (even substitute evaporated milk or half-n-half) or no butter, use cream of celery, chicken, or mushroom soup. It will taste slightly different with each change, but still be delicious!"
"I decided to try this recipe because my daughters love mac and cheese, and I think I enjoyed it more than they did! I prepared the mac and cheese as I normally would (using the ingredients on the box), accidentally used 98% fat-free cream of celery soup (we couldn't tell), 1 1/2 cups of frozen peas and then sprinkled crushed baked potato chips and about 1/4 cup of cheese on the top in lieu of the full cup of cheese. Extremely creamy and delicious warmed up the next day as well!"
"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.Response to MiMi: Thanks. That might be an outdated way of doing things now. Most online recipes, including TOH, have an option to add the ingredients to your shopping list. If additional items are on the box, but not in the recipe, they would not get added to the shopping list. It worked out for this particular recipe, but there are other TOH recipes that could easily be ruined."
"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 ...it 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."
"It was very good but instead of using cream of celery soup I used cream of chicken soup"
"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!"
