"My family and I quite enjoyed this dish. I'm not usually a huge fan of using velveta, but it gave this dish the flavor that it needed! I really like dill, so I did double the amount of dill. I would make this again."

"Something about the cheese and tuna together was unappealing. I won't make this again though my boyfriend liked it."

"If done with mayo instead of cheese it can be shilled and used as pasta salad."

"for a cold version (great for any cookout) Cook macaroni according to package directions and 3 minutes before done add a box of sweet pead: drain, cool and place in a large bowl. Dice 4 stalks of celery, add to the bowl. Flake the tuna and add to the bowl and mix everything well. In a small bowl mix 1 1/2cups mayo, 2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp celery salt, a few grinds of fresh pepper and mix well. Add to the pasta, mix well, check for seasonings and chill. Add another 1/2c mayo or enough to just coat the pasta before serving. We make this for every cookout and it always disappears - so simple and SO GOOD!!!"
