Thanks for the recipe! My mom often made this for us when I was a kid, and I found myself craving it tonight. Since I am trying to watch my fat intake, I left out the margarine and just added the flour mixed in with a small amount of water. I, too, found it a little thinner than what I'm used to, but that's fine. I just added a little more thickening. I had mine over crumbled Saltines. Thanks!

This was so amazingly simple to make. I cut the recipe in half, as my husband doesn't care much for tuna, I still used 1 can of tuna and it worked out perfect. I think if I made the full recipe I would actually double the tuna. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!!

I thickened mine a bit more than the recipe called for as that's how we like it best. We had with egg noodles and we all enjoyed it to the max! So delicious! Reminds me of my mom, as she always made it for us growing up and it just so happened to be one of my favorites! DH just about licked his plate. I had to grab it away from him. I swear he was gonna take a bite! :)
