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!

Excellent! I added another 1/2 box of Mac & Cheese that one of our kids had made that day, 1/2 can of chopped carrots, 1 can of chopped olives, 1/4 can of plump corn, onion powder, garlic salt, salt, fresh ground pepper to taste. A lot of cheese on the top. Could double or triple the breading on the top - had to spread it with a spoon, still didn't cover the entire top. This fed 5 adult eaters easily (none left for dad who was working) - so if you need more, perhaps double. Baked uncovered in 3 qt dish for 25 minutes. Perfect!

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.
