Very good weeknight supper. I used the mushroom soup, but didn't have the cheddar soup, so used Campbell's Fiesta Nacho instead--kicked up the spice a few notches. Also drained most of the water out of the tuna AND added a can of kipper-snack (herring)....that added a bit of fishy-flavor (DH didn't like it, but the kids and I did!). Saltines give it crunch, altho' not sure how that will translate into leftovers! Anyway, good recipe and am freezing some for later on, too. Will let you know how THAT turns out (if I remember!).

Fast and easy to make and on the table in 45 minutes (baking time)using my 9x13 stone baking dish. I did add 1 tablespoon of minced onions, 6 more ounces of macaroni and another can of tuna. This was a hit with the family as everyone had seconds. Another keeper. Thanks
