Easy Macaroni Tuna Casserole

Recipe by  

"This dish is super easy. It is also a very hearty delicious bowl of comfort food. The guys in my house loved it. I loved this recipe but I used cream of mushroom soup and added the cheese into the casserole. I also melted butter and added bread crumbs to the top before baking, then sprinkle top lightly with dill seasoning. The resulting casserole was very creamy and flavorful."

I added onion powder/garlic powder/hot sauce/squirt dijon mustard, an additional half cup of cheese and another can of tuna fish to the casserole mixture. I did not use the dill weed. GREAT pantry lunch--super cheap to make and made a filling lunch for my husband and two boys.

LOVE this recipe. Super easy and filling. I left out the parsley and dill and added a small can of peas/carrotts...my family ate it up and asked for more!

This was really good. My husband loved it and it was super easy to make. My only hesitation was the healthiness of the dish.

This is not anything I ever would've chosen to cook except I had my 4 year old nephew coming over and needed something kid-friendly that I didn't have to make a trip to the store for. I thought my nephew would like it but figured my husband and I would end up eating something else after. I was very surprised by this recipe. It isn't anything fancy but it was very easy, inexpensive, and tasted just like old school tuna casserole. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I did add an extra can of tuna because I thought it needed it. Other then that I followed the recipe as written.

This is probably the most elaborate dish I've tried to cook yet and it came out amazing! I stumbled onto it because I was craving mushrooms and tuna, and the flavors of both mixed really well. I confused this recipe with another and bought Portobello mushrooms so I added a layer on top, a layer of cheese, and then the bread crumbs. I didn't use the parsley and dill.
