  • Reviews

  • “This was an easy recipe & ready for the oven in no time at all.I added one more cup of noodles to the mixture and an extra can of tuna.Very good, thank you.”

  • “Really excellent. Fast and tasty. Next time I think I will add all the noodles to the mix, cutting them up first for easier serving.”

  • “I used salmon instead of tuna, because that’s what I have in the house. I added extra cashews and noodles and I served it over hot jasmine rice. It came out pretty good. My husband liked it enough to ask me to make it again!”
