"This is the best tuna melt recipe I've ever used. I just cut back the celery to 1/2 cup and left the salt out. Enjoy!!"

"This recipe is very easy and delicious. I didn't feel like chopping an onion, so I used 1 teaspoon onion powder instead. Also used 3/4 cup shredded cheese instead of diced cheese. The kids loved this."
