Perfect. Exactly the recipe I was looking for. I substituted cream of mushroom soup & extra sharp cheddar cheese, but all else was the same. Thanks for posting!

This was very good. I especially appreciate the creaminess. I used cream of broccoli soup and a large handful of shredded cheese instead of the cheese slices. I added 1 T of garlic and onion powder and I added the mayo/tuna to the soup/milk/cheese mixture on the stove to warm it all up together. I also threw in 1 cup of frozen peas for the last two minutes of the noodles. I mixed it all together and it was hot and creamy and delicious. I didn't bother with baking it either since that is usually a step I try to delete. Next time I will add broccoli instead per daughter's request. Thank you for a simple, good, easy meal!!!
