  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni, and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, and saute until tender. Season with paprika, chili powder, and oregano. Pour in the wine, and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the spinach, and simmer until heated through. Stir the spinach mixture into the drained macaroni. Mix in the tuna. Combine the condensed soup and milk; stir into the mixture until evenly coated. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Crumble toasted bread over the top.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is crispy and browned.

I thought this was awful. It took awhile to cook and was so bland. My husband wouldn't even eat it!! That says it all right there. To salvage it, I added parm. cheese, tomato sauce and a lot of Italian seasonings.

I thought this was excellent. Made a few minor changes, mostly to use what I had in the house. I substituted wide egg noodles for the macaroni. Didn't have Verdelho, so I used an open bottle of cab that I had. Substituted fresh spinach (6 oz) for canned because I like the taste better, added a second can of tuna and used cream in place of milk because I wanted to use it up and thought it would be good. I also had french fried onions that I used in place of bread crumbs. Despite the substitutions (which I don't think changed the flavor all that much), I think this is a great basic recipe that adds more flavor and veggies to a traditional tuna noodle casserole. You can really add any veggies you want to this- I think it would be good with onions, corn, peas, etc.

This was okay. I used rotini pasta instead of elbow macaroni and regular bread crumbs instead of toasted bread. I added more ricotta to make it a bit creamier. I might make this again, but I probably would not add the spinach. It doesn't really need it.

I've never been a tuna cassarole fan, but this was pretty tasty. I didn't have, and therefore didn't use, any wine, and this recipe still turned out.

at first my friend was nice and said it was good= then told me later it was not as great when she was trying to digest it... It smelled so bad I didnt want to eat it.... the mushrooms and spinach really dont do much for it.
