Tuna Lasagna

"This is a great favourite in my household. And I have found that even people who generally don't like tuna enjoy this dish. It's sounds unusual I know, but it really is very nice served with crusty bread and a green salad!"

  1. Good but we weren't wowed by this, rather lacking in seasoning and creamier than we like. Just a bit of seasoning may have made all the difference. Also I may make my usual white sauce rather than this one which adds cottage cheese to the same ingredients, this I would put on top rather than in the layers. Changes I made were grated zuchinni added, diced tomatoes rather than tomatoes and mozzarella instead of tasty.
  2. Great way to get rid of all that extra tuna!!
  3. This recipe really surprised me, fantastic, definitely will be a regular in my household.
  4. I cooked this last weekend, but i used linguini instead of lasagna. I used spicy tuna in can and used the oil with the tuna to saute. I added sliced button mushrooms too for the veggie content. I ommitted the white sauce coz i couldnt find any flour in my cupboard. added grated mozarella on to and baked til it melted. It turned out so good! will definitely make it again.
  5. Made this for my family. They said it was the best thing I've made for them so far! : ) I used light cheddar cheese. Turned out great, can't wait to make it again!
