I thought this was excellent. Made a few minor changes mostly to use what I had in the house. I substituted wide egg noodles for the macaroni. Didn't have Verdelho so I used an open bottle of cab that I had. Substituted fresh spinach (6 oz) for canned because I like the taste better added a second can of tuna and used cream in place of milk because I wanted to use it up and thought it would be good. I also had french fried onions that I used in place of bread crumbs. Despite the substitutions (which I don't think changed the flavor all that much) I think this is a great basic recipe that adds more flavor and veggies to a traditional tuna noodle casserole. You can really add any veggies you want to this- I think it would be good with onions corn peas etc. Read More

I thought this was awful. It took awhile to cook and was so bland. My husband wouldn't even eat it!! That says it all right there. To salvage it I added parm. cheese tomato sauce and a lot of Italian seasonings. Read More

This was okay. I used rotini pasta instead of elbow macaroni and regular bread crumbs instead of toasted bread. I added more ricotta to make it a bit creamier. I might make this again but I probably would not add the spinach. It doesn't really need it. Read More

I've never been a tuna cassarole fan but this was pretty tasty. I didn't have and therefore didn't use any wine and this recipe still turned out. Read More
