Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in the process of making this recipe. I am in the process of making this recipe. I am glad Kraft had this basic recipe but I did add ginger, soy, and a little worchectshire sause. I maninated the onions ( I used green onions and the celery in butter before I started putting this recipe together.I added all the spices with the onions and celery. The smells in my house are tremendous! It is raning here and I am looking forward to fininshing this recipes but if the aroma is any indication it is a keeper! Thank you so much Kraft. I know this is going to be good and a hot meal that I will serve for years to come. And Kraft makes it so easy. I haven't finished yet but this is to die for. you wouldn't smell this coming out of the greatest kitchens anywhere. My only suggest is add more spice and let the vetgetables saute because it will make you hungry just smelling it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was an easy and delicious meal. This was an easy and delicious meal. I worried that the celery and onions needed to be sauteed first, but I put them in chopped and raw. I added 2 cans of tuna (instead of one). I used crushed Corn Flakes without any butter. I baked at 350 for 30 minutes. Excellent! The celery and onions were a bit crunchy, but very good. My husband suggested that I should make this on a regular basis. He wants to take the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Aunt came up for a visit and wanted Tuna Casserole w/ Ritz crackers on top! My Aunt came up for a visit and wanted Tuna Casserole w/ Ritz crackers on top! We found this recipe and tried it! It was very good and tasted just like the one she remembered from the family reuinion! I personally think it needed a touch of salt! Oh yeah, We trippled the amount of crackers and butter to make an extra thick crust on top. The original recipe for the topping wasn't enough to cover the top of the casserole completely!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yummy! Yummy!! Very easy to make, the celery gave it a nice crunch. I used a 12 oz. can of tuna and Velveeta whole grain Rotini and Chese. I did not have frozen peas so I folded in a can of sweet peas after adding all the other ingredients...worked out just fine! Not a big fan of tuna but this was delicious!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dinner! Excellent dinner! My husband and I loved it. We also doubled the amount of butter and cracker topping and it covered the top well. We used wheat ritz crackers instead of original and it was very good. Although I don't like onions they did add a great flavor. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very tasty dish. Very tasty dish. I used a regular box of mac and cheese instead of Deluxe and it was still delicious. One thing, though: Preparing as directed left the peas a little undercooked. You may want to cook them some before using.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A very good dish. A very good dish. I've made this several times, but I actually made the mac and cheese with the recipe on the package of Velveeta, instead of the Deluxe Mac and Cheese. It is easy, and a yummy new way to enjoy tuna.
