Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I recently started layering ingredients instead of mixing them all up in a casserole and I find that I like the way it turns out better. And also many times you don't need to boil the pasta first if there's enough sauce in the casserole. I find the large rigatoni works real well. It cooks up well without boiling first and it holds its shape well.

It's great with or without tuna. When I make it with tuna, I also add frozen peas - makes a really good supper casserole.

I like the idea of adding flaked tuna gonna try it both ways I made a recipe like this with sliced cheese between the layers of pasta. but had forgotten the recipe so glad to see this one

This is similar to my mama's recipe. We call it Baked Macaroni. So good!

Sounds delicious! Imma try it right now!!

I've made somethimg very similar. I add layers of flaked tuna, in with the cheese.

Hot tuna. Yuck!!

old fashion
