  1. I loved this, I added salt and vinegar chips to the topping cheese to make a crust. I would have given this a 5 but hubby rated 3 so I went for the middle on this one. This really has a nice 70's comfort food feel to it
  2. This hit the spot! I used light corn syrup, albacore tuna, and extra cheese (slices that I tore up). Next time I'd use even more cheese--maybe mix it with cheddar--and probably add some seasonings. I liked that I didn't have to cook the noodles separately. It didn't taste sweet to us at all--just good and savory.
  3. Great name for a good dish!! Love the ease of preparation. I used Swiss cheese and a lite syrup and it was great. Was dinner for two for two nights. Well worth doing agin. Thanks Trisha
  4. Hi! Hubby and I really enjoyed this. It was a change from the every day for sure. We found it a bit too sweet as well. Will be making it again for sure, but may add less corn syrup.
  5. The name fits the recipe perfectly, it is unusual. This is definately easy to make, great for a weeknight. My DH said 3+ stars and I gave it 4 on ease of prep and an unusual use for canned tuna.
