Very simple and yummy dinner. Instead of the canned biscuits I used E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix to make the few I needed. I also used low fat soup and fat free sour cream. I love the flavor that the sour cream adds. This is really hearty and should please the men in your family with no problem. It's a full meal with just a salad to go with it.
The tuna and pasta mixture in this recipe worked well. The buscuits were another story. They were almost burnt on top and gluey and raw on the bottom. They either need to be turned half way through cooking or cooked separately. The raw dough did not enhanse the dish. Hope others don't have this problem.
