This is one of those dishes that I grew up on (thanks to my best friends mom - which cooked everything like this). Anyhow - 5 Stars for easy peasy and 5 stars for taste! Also - she really never used cheddar but just used sliced cheese; still delish! Read More

Excellent in terms of time (it's quick!!), taste needed some work. Here's what I did: instead of saucepan, I used a deep skillet for preperation. I sauteed the tuna in melted butter and seasoned w salt and pepper. After adding the milk & cheese, I seasoned the whole thing with garlic salt. For the garnish (to add some crunch)I put some Ritz crackers in a sandwich bag and crushed them (just a bit) then added about 1/2 c shredded cheese, shook it up and spread it on top. Put the pan in the oven on broil for about 1 minute--made it more casserole-y. Tasted better the next day! Read More

Kinda' on the fence with this one. We ate it but there was something missing. I kept adding stuff (not worth mentioning) but just didn't quite do it for us. Read More

Great base/starter recipe. I thought Id rate this to inform people of easy alterations. I improvised by cooking 1 1/2 c rice 3 c water in my rice cooker. I lowered the milk to only half a soup can since I was cooking the rice. I used one can of peas instead of frozen (I'm sure most frozen or canned veggies would be great) and I added some seasoning and used sour cream and onion potato chips. So if you have to improvise this is a great recipe. P.s I think I'll try it with pasta next time. Read More

Agree this is great base recipe. One of those nights where I had nothing planned and not much in the pantry/fridge. Cooked regular white rice. Then mixed in white tuna the mushroom soup milk sliced fresh mushrooms some garlic onion salt and pepper. Melted reduced fat colby cheese on top (less than a cup though). My kids don't like peas and I left off the fried onions/chips to keep it low fat. Served with green beans on the side. Both kids loved it and said to please make it again!! Read More

Yum! This was deceptively delicious. Reminds me of tuna casserole but so much quicker. We added some onions about 1/3 cup. Such an easy weeknight meal. Read More
