    PaulaG's Note:

    Years ago DH was closing up his apartment after a hard semester at school. He was down to only a few items in the kitchen: a boxed macaroni and cheese dinner, 1 can of peas and 1 can of tuna. The result was this dish that has come in so handy over the years. Our kids still love it.

      This is one of those dishes that brings back memories for me. My daddy used to make this for me when I was little. We were both huge tuna fish fans, but no one in the house seemed to like it so he would always whip up a batch just for us. Now as an adult I make this for myself when I need a little comfort.. I've never added Cream of mushroom soup because of an allergy, but I have substituted 1/2 cup of heavy cream instead of the milk and that always seemed to give it that extra creaminess. I also add 1/2 tsp of pepper. YUMMY!

      My fiance and I thought this was okay. It was probably an improvement on plain mac n' cheese, but it was a little bland.

      A quick easy way to make an ok tuna dish. I'm not a big fan of kraft dinner (what we Canadians call it), but somehow had a box in my pantry, so was looking for a way to doctor it up, and this fit the bill. As another reviewer noted I think adding a can of cream of mushroom soup to this would give it some creaminess, but then that would be a whole different recipe: which is here on zaar as well!
