Recipe by JCURPHY
"Cheap, easy, cheesy tuna and noodles for college students on a shoe string budget. If you really wanna dress it up, you can add thinly sliced almonds or sunflower seeds for more flavor and texture. Of course this defeats the purpose of it being cheap and easy, but at least it's more enjoyable."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was a great idea! I didn't have tuna and American on hand so I used a can of chicken and cheddar cheese. DELICIOUS! I've never thought of adding cheese before. I gave 4 stars because of the changes I made, but it was a 5 star taste! I think I'll add some cooked spinach or broccoli next time and make it a complete 1-dish meal.
What's better is to crush up cheeze-its,dice some pickles, diced onions,add 2 slices of cheese and the tuna. It's also good with diced tomatoes on top. It becomes thick and is great with crackers.
quick, easy and tasty. the only difference i made was that i used canned chicken instead of the tuna because most people i know dont like warm tuna
Great simple recipe! I made a few variations. I like spicy food, so I added some diced jalapeno peppers and diced mexican-style stewed tomatoes. I also added a little water & butter to try to prevent it all from sticking & clumping together, but to no avail. I'd also suggest breaking the noodles in half to enable the ingredients to better mix with the noodles. Overall, very tasty & filling!
Great last minute meal! I used the cup noodles(2.25oz) and the regular size canned tuna(6oz) with 1 slice Montery Jack. The cup'o'noodles have the spices already in cup so I poured the cup of boiling water over it, let it sit for a minute then put the noodles on top of the cheese and tuna leaving out most of the water.It was great(I ate it all in 1 sitting) and I didn't miss any of the salt or flavorings from the broth!
Not to bad for cheap, on the fly 'dorm' food. I did mine with half a pack of seasoning (that stuff's really salty!), a lil' EVOO (yummo!), and a slice of Pepperjack cheese.
Pretty good, but not as good as Tuna Helper
I tripled this recipe for my kids. They loved it. The second time I made it with a can of cream of mushroom soup. It turned out delicious.
