Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


great tuna

This recipe was great however I had to lower the carbs so I used whole wheat pasta. Still turned out delicious.

Yummy, healthy seafood recipe

This is a failure proof, yummy and healthy recipe. I add shrimp and bay scallops to it when I have guests over and they are totally impressed by it!

This casserole is excellent!

I tried this casserole over the weekend and it was wonderful! I would probably add a little less pasta so that it is really creamy but other than that... IT WAS WONDERFUL! My whole family raved!

Easy and Delicious

I work long hours and when I get home I don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This is an easy fix that is very good on a cold evening.
