so how would i go about making the same recipe with regular canned tuna and the tomato soup in the red and white cans? ie ingredients i can get locally.

Well the stuff in the red and white can will be way to salty, and being as its usually from concentrate getting a good creamy blend is a bit difficult. Alternatively if you want to try and make this with regular off the shelf ingredients a jar a pasta suauce, a cup of stock and a cup heavy cream simmered together is a quick and easy cream of tomato soup and cost about 3 dollars for about 4 servings. That and about 2 cans of oil should "budgetize" this recipe. As for the cheese just don't use the shake stuff. At least get the stuff out of the dairy section.
