Because my family likes a crunchy topping on tuna casserole I added 1/2 cup of half & half to the mix so I could bake it for twenty minutes with toasted Italian bread crumbs on top. I also broke my raw noodles into two inch size pieces (this I do inside a gallon plastic bag so the hard pasta doesn't scatter) so that the dish was easier to eat. It was very good and easy to prepare. Read More

I used bowtie instead of fettuccine and I think I would try this again but it's a little bland. But that's actually good in our house because of picky eaters. Read More

This was a quick and easy weeknight meal and really great comfort food! I subbed in rotini and frozen peas since it's easier to eat than fettuccini and canned peas gross me out. I drained the pasta overtop the peas so that they'd defrost but not really cook and added it to the sauce. Also threw in a handful of chopped bell pepper and onion I've been trying to get rid of and it added a little color. I'm not sure where the time of 35 minutes came from...it took me about 5 to chop the extra veggies while waiting for the water to boil 10 to cook the noodles and another 5 to heat up the sauce and throw everything together. I will definitely make this again. Read More

a tasty and quick lunch (even for me!). i used macaroni and campbell's cream of mushroom because i didn't have any fetuccini or alfredo sauce on hand but it worked out nicely. the oregano lends a distinct flavor to the dish. Read More

This was great quick easy and still good reheated. In other words everything you want in a weeknight dinner. I did add a good amount of grated parmesean cheese to the jar sauce as I don't like the odd taste in store-bought alfredos but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Read More

I just kinda used this recipe as inspiration and made a hefty portion for myself for dinner. i used all the ingredients except oregano and basil (didn't have any) It turned out really good!! I didn't measure anything so I wouldn't know about the proportions of the recipe I just used the ingredients it has listed minus the last 2.... yummy yummy!! Read More

Did this recipe exactly as directed except I used sundried tomato alfredo sauce. Turned out really well and was even good the next day for lunch. Good way to use up some leftover ingredients. Read More

We're big fans of tuna noodle casserole but sometimes I'm just not up to doing the whole oven casserole thing. This recipe pulls together very quickly and doesn't have to be measured out to be perfect. A box of pasta a bag of tuna a can of peas and half a jar of Alfredo sauce seined with basil oregano and garlic. That is pretty simple. While the pasta boiled I heated the Alfredo peas tuna and dried herbs in a separate saucepan. I combined that with the drained pasta and topped each serving with a little shredded Parmesan cheese. My son added this to his list of favorites. Read More
