Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was really good after I had made some changed to it. This recipe was really good after I had made some changed to it. Instead of the frozen broccoli, I used a bag of frozen peas and cubbed carrots. I also added more Velveeta. Instead of using the microwave, after I drained the pasta I just added all the ingredients to the pan and cooked them that way skipping the need to thaw the frozen vegetables. After the Velveeta was melted, I put it into a casserole dish, sprinkled the top with some cheddar cheese and baked it in the oven on 375 for 20 minutes. Next time I will not put 1/2 sour cream in it...it was a little much. I'll try doing 1/4 next time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This really was just okay. This really was just okay. The sour cream with the Velveeta did make it creamy, but it definitely wasn't cheesy, and none of the other flavors really jumped out. The end result was a pretty bland. Perhaps if one of the ingredients was more flavorful, or if there was a characteristic spice or a more flavorful cheese...but I honestly won't go to that level of effort to try and make this recipe better.

I have a very hard time finding different things to cook that my whole will eat and enjoy, I like to diversify and try all kionds of new things and require my children to broaden their taste horizons but my husband is a good ol' meat and potatoes kind of guy, this meal is one that my whole family enjoyed, and I enjoyed making it, I have made it three times now and it continues to be a success.

Was looking for a broccoli and cheese recipe and found this one and immediately gave it a try. Did not have quite enough sour cream on hand so I added a touch of milk after the first round in the microwave. I enjoyed it so much I had to take some to my husband at work cause I wanted him to try it while it was hot - he said it was a keeper!!!

I thought this was good and I did add some seasoning, a bit of water, green onion, and carrot to the recipe (per a reviewer's suggestion). I used fresh carrots and broccoli and simply boiled them in the noodle water the last couple of minutes. It tasted delicious and my husband loved it. Essentially it's a very simply tuna casserole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was AWFUL! This was AWFUL!! I wouldn't even eat it much less my kids!! The picture looks like it would be amazing! Mine surely didn't look like that!! I followed directions to a 'T' - Not doing it again that's for sure!! Tuna and noodles with peas is the way to go for me..I'd add shredded cheddar instead of velveeta any day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Per the other comments, I increased the cheese from 4 oz. Per the other comments, I increased the cheese from 4 oz. to closer to 8 oz. I think this was too much. I also only used 1 can of tuna. And I mixed everything together at the end by melting the cheese on the stovetop with the rotini. Overall, it worked for something quick and easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My boyfriend is very piky and hate brocoli. My boyfriend is very piky and hate brocoli. I thought that he would like it because of the Tuna. I was surprised how well he liked it and even how well I liked it. I am not much of a fan of tuna and I loved it. He even went back for seconds.
