Definitely a tasty dish! There were some slight changes we made. I'm not a huge fan of raw onion, so we sauteed it first and roasted the bell peppers which I thought really added some great flavor. We also used veggie broth and about 6 ounces of cheese. I thought that there was a LOT of tuna, and when we make it again, I will cut it back to around 8-10 ounces. We will try it again though!
