  • 1 (7.25 ounce) package macaroni and cheese

  • ¼ cup butter

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (5 ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley, or to taste (Optional)

  • ¼ cup bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • ½ teaspoon dried dill weed, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and return macaroni to the pot.

  3. Stir in 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup milk, and the envelope of powdered cheese from the package. Add mushroom soup, tuna, and 1/2 cup milk; stir to combine. Pour macaroni mixture into the prepared baking dish; top with Cheddar cheese and parsley.

  4. Mix bread crumbs, 1/4 cup melted butter, and dill in a small bowl; sprinkle over Cheddar cheese layer.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and the top is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
