Very good home-cookin' taste on this one. I like that the cheese swirls and the tuna gravy were both homemade. I would say that 4 servings is a stretch; the three of us each had 3 swirls with a third of the topping and it was just enough served with a side of veggies. After 12 minutes my swirls were plenty done and I wished I had taken them out earlier; they weren't burned but they were a bit on the firm side. This is a kid pleaser recipe, my DS loved the cheese swirls! Made with PAC Spring 2008.
