Reviews forMacaroni Tuna Casserole
"My husband and I thought this was a great tuna casserole. I loved how simple it was to put togethers and it's usually with ingredients I already have on hand."
"I made this dish frequently while my kids were growing up-- it's SO kid-friendly! I have always doubled the amount of tuna called for in ANY tuna recipe to make sure there was enough protein per person served and this dish was no exception. 1 6-oz. can is hardly enough for 2 folks, let alone 4. I enjoyed the cream of celery flavor--a nice change from the cream of chicken or mushroom that is more prevalent. The recipe is so easy, the kids can help you make it!"
"I had such a taste for this after I saw the recipe, so I made it tonight!!! I made it according to the directions but used Cream of Mushroom soup. Also added the cheese and some crushed potato chips. It was delicious and I will bet it will taste even better tomorrow!!! An old comfort food re-visited. It brought back memories of my mother!!!"
"I have made this for years. I also add a can of peas."
"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!"
