    Suprisingly yummy! Simple and easy to make, I used about half the butter the recipe called for. Tastes suprisingly similarto the tuna au gratin tuna helper brand box.

    I did indeed do this in college, less the lemon juice, but I usually added hot sauce. It tastes good, not fabulous. But it is simple, cheap (we always used generic ingredients), & satisfying. If we were feeling fancy & had the funds, some ad- ins we tried, handful of frozen peas, any leftover cooked vegetables, handful of shredded cheese, or the classic french fried onions (in or on top). One of our cheap toppings came by accident, we were toasting white bread to make garlic toast to go with it & over-toasted a piece of bread. We scraped off the worst of it, sprayed with a little butter flavored PAM, then crumbled on top for the college version of breadcrumbs. This is not a gourmet meal, but for cheap, easy eats, it covers all the bases.

    Great dish to prepare and eat in the office, when you have a short lunch break. I substituted the cream of mushroom by a pack of mushroom powder quick soup. Same great result. I used a packet of EasyMac from Craft, and a can of tuna with olive oil ! Brabo.

    The recipe is easy to make, preparation is simple, but wasn't really for my taste buds. I am usually not a picky eater, but something about this didn't work for me. Hope you have better luck with it!
