Top Review by bmcnichol

As written this was OK but with a little help, it was pretty good. I followed the recipe as written at first but it was a bit plain. I needed to add a bit more water to get the noodles to get cooked. So I used a total of 2 cups of water plus the chicken broth. I added a can of peas and a good bit of pepper and salt as there was no seasoning in this. I also added another can of tuna as we thought it needed more. I didn't add the breadcrumbs as I am not a fan of them on my tuna. With the changes made, we thought this was pretty good.
