You know, sometimes when it's hot~you don't want to eat nor even be near a kitchen. Until~you get a hankering for this dish. I have been thinking about this, and thinking about it for a couple of weeks, In fact, my husband and I discussed when we would have this. Today was the day. Even though it was hot, and unbearable, as Maryland summers months go, I made this for our lunch, and devoured it poolside. This really, really hits the spot. I picked the fresh peas from the garden this morning, along with some fresh red onions. I quickly assembled this, and baked it for a bit in the oven, and believe me, it hit the spot. There is nothing "Poor Man's" about this. Totally wonderful in taste, as well as probably inchangable with vegetables, using broccoli, even chopped up zucchini, or fresh green beans in place of peas. I added crushed potato chips on top instead of the French fried onions, as I didn't have any. And a spot of dried red pepper flakes just to give it that extra "pow!" Thanks, iewe, will make it lots! Made for *ZWT3 07*

Boxed macaroni and cheese at its finest! The fried onions and cheddar make this. My husband didn't even realize it had tuna in it! I heated on stove and broiled until onions were browned, which made this even quicker to prepare. Thanks iewe, for posting. Roxygirl

This is just really really good comfort food for a cold winters night here in Michigan. (3 degrees). I love the different twist-up to the normal tuna noodle I usually make. With the use of soup, cheese and french-fried onions....well, it just upped it another notch in my cook-book. The only sub I made was using frozen corn instead of the peas. Family preference. Thanks Iewe.~ Made for Potluck Tag!

This is THE BEST tuna casserole I have ever had! I made this about a month ago, and apparently forgot to add to my cookbook... I was in a panick because I couldn't find it! Boy am I relieved... Entire family LOVED it! Even the toddler that picks around tuna, & the 5 year old that picks around veggies ate ALL of this! Thanks for posting this!

I love this! My mom used to make this for us as kids, without the extra cheddar cheese or the onions. She used to call this "Tuna Goop"

I whipped up a double batch, kept some for my husband and myself, and packaged the rest for my 20-something daughter and several of her friends to use as dinner after long days at their jobs. We loved it - even my husband, who is only mildly enthused about pasta. It's one of those meals that can be thrown together using pantry contents, but gives the impression that some degree of caring and an investment of time were involved. (I love a charade.) It's fast, cheap, easy and embarrassingly good - just like Mom used to make.
