Reviews for Tuna Mac and Cheese Bake
"This was really, really good! I omitted the frozen peas and threw just some pearl onions. I'll definitely make this again!"
"Fantastic recipe!! We can't get enough of it."
"I love this dish! It take tuna casserole to a whole new level! Bravo!!"
"awsome! made it several times already since I got the recipe"
"I thought this was surprisingly good...and soo easy. I made mine with turkey ham and left out the peas because I know my family preferences. The french onions give it a unique flavor. You'd never guess it started with a box of mac and cheese!"
"Very good. A few cracks of pepper and even better!"
"My husband loved it.I wasn't too crazy about the amount of peas it had in it. I will try a different veggie the next time I make it."
"We loved this one... instead of tuna, we added chicken and used cheddar french fried onions! Yummy!"
