    From Women's Day magazine. Uses store-cupboard ingredients for a good, quick supper. In the absence of jumbo pasta shells, you could use pasta tubes instead, I think.

      This one didn't suit our tastebuds. I did use pasta tubes, as suggested. I wound up needing to double the recipe to fill them- apparently they're much bigger than the shells, which I didn't realize. We found that the filling tasted dry, with an overpowering taste of parsley. If I tried something like this again I'd want a more moist filling (sauce? cheese?) and I'd spice up the sauce with some garlic or other seasonings. Thanks anyway!

      This was good, I used cream of mushroom soup in place of the cream of celery, the recipe does not say when to add in the Parmesan cheese or paprika so I just sprinkled both on top before baking. Thanks, Kitten:)

      Tasty recipe. I don't use canned soups but made up 1 1/2 cups of bechamel sauce (incorporating the milk as well) to which I added minced celery and onion that I had sweated in a little bit of butter. I would have liked a little more flavour in this recipe and a couple of tablespoonfuls more of parmesan, added to the tuna/bread filling, would be a good addition. Good instructions.
