I changed lots of things in this recipe, and loved it! First, I sauteed one onion and 4 garlic cloves on a pot. I added one large green pepper, a stalk of celery, and a can of tomatoes. To this I added 3/4 cup of rice, and one cup of water. i added two cans of tuna to the mixture. I added a dash of mustard seed, some thyme, some basil, and ground pepper. I let everything simmer for about 40 mins, untill it not longer looked like soup. I served it in a pasta bowl, sprinkled with ground pepper to taste, and salt, and shredded old cheddar cheese. YUM!!! just remember you need lots of pepper! Read More

I took someone's suggestion and substituted Uncle Ben's wild rice and then someone else suggested sauteing the onion and garlic first. It turned out pretty well and the kids loved it. Read More

Ya know I don't like to waste food and I'm not a picky eater but I couldn't finish this. Something just wasn't right...neither eye appeal scent texture or flavor. I do enjoy trying new things but this is one of the few to scratch off the list. Read More

never would have imagined this would be good --so basically followed the recipe used brown rice though and cooked it in veg broth and garlic then added tuna dried onion and tomatoes from my garden - maybe used a little more mozz than called for. also added a bit of johnnys doc - its a tacoma thing but lawrys is similar - seriously delicious. weird granted but delicious.

Something just wasn't right about this one. I don't think tuna and rice belong with tomatoes. We had trouble finishing it and I won't make it again. Read More

This was not a bad meal it was just boring. There was not much flavor. I even flavored my rice using chicken boullon cubes. I cooked the garlic and onions before hand in a little olive oil and basil I also added lots of salt and pepper. It was pretty boring and I will not make this recipe again. Read More

I was in the mood for a tuna salad/casserole but because of allergies I can't eat egg dairy or pasta. This was a decent alternative. I did make a few adjustments. I made brown rice with garlic powder then added salt. I layered the following: 1/2 of rice half a sauteed onion a can of hunt's fire roasted tomatoes w garlic tuna lots of moz cheese rest of rice and a little more salt and garlic (i like garlic). I'll probably make this again but with and entire sauteed onion. Read More
