I got the 5 star okay from the whole family on this one! I guess there were three things I did different. Added a extra can of tuna, used one cup of frozen peas & carrots and then added one extra cup of cooked noodles. Oh yes, I added the cheese on top the last 15 minutes of baking. Thank you for such a GREAT recipe, we'll be using this often! Pick A Chef 2006
