This went over great with my family. It was so easy my make that my 9 year old daughter made most of it with me. We changed it up a bit by using minute rice and on top we didn't have any corn flakes or crackers, so we tried a pouch of shakin bake. It turned out great!! We also used low fat cream of chicken soup, skim milk, and we didn't use any butter, so it ended up being quite a bit healthier than the nutrition facts listed. Definitely adding this one to our recipe list!!

Inexpensive quick meal. Doubled peas and tuna and added 1/4chopped onion. Topped with crushed croutons since I was out of corn flakes and crackers. Needs more flavor. I might add garlic next time. Thank you!

I didn't have macaroni for a regular tuna casserole, so using rice instead sounded like a nice idea. I used cream of mushroom soup. I wanted to use the remainder of cheddar cheese I had, but didn't. Decided to use the only crackers I had (Ritz). That added a bit of a sweet taste, but it didn't hurt this dish's possibilities with me. It's a keeper. I'll have to try it using buttery crackers or topping it with cheddar cheese. Thanks for posting!

I've made this many times using leftover rice from Chinese takeout. This time I had a wonderful jar of imported Italian tuna. I also chopped up some onion, a stray banana pepper and a jarred pepperdew pepper. Of course a bit of garlic. I used the cheddar cheese soup because I had it but I have make this with both mushroom and celery soup. I topped it off with crushed stuffing croutons. Thanks for posting this.Carol.

Wow Caro! What a GREAT pantry stand-by recipe! This ticked all the boxes for a tasty and quick meal for us - and it was inexpensive too. Malcolm, who is not a lover of condensed soups normally, LOVED this and has asked me to make it again......a great accolade indeed! I used Basmati rice and the optional peas. I had some condensed mushroom soup in the pantry, so that was used. I DID make a LEETLE sub! I had no cornflakes or crackers, so I used a bag of croutons for the topping and did NOT use the butter to cut back on the fat content. We ate this with a big green salad and fresh parsley for a garnish - super duper, many thanks for a quick and easy mid-week meal. Made for the Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap and the One Pot Wonders event in the Cooking Photo's Forum. Merci ma leetle petits pois. FT:-)

This was a nice easy meal to make for the end of the work week. It was okay but didn't really titillate the taste buds to a great extent. If I make it again I will be adding a few things for extra flavour such as onions & some herbs but thanks for a nice easy Friday night meal. Made for ZWT III.

This is a great alternative to tuna and noodles. We used mushroom soup, milk and buttery crackers for a great dish!

This was so easy and tasted great. The peas really add color to the dish. I add 1 tablespoon of dehydrated onions I also doubled the tuna and peas. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting. I made this for Zaar Tag game 2007
