Does anyone except me think that 3 cans of tuna for a 4-person recipe is too much. I only used 2,and it was plenty.

This is excellent, and really easy...

Here's my tip: Put a pouring spout in a large bottle of sherry and keep it on the counter near the stove. Sherry is a nice touch to so many dishes: sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers. scrambled eggs, white sauces, stir-fries, cheese sauces, clam chowder, you name it. Also, seeing all these "skillet" dishes reminded me that I never use the work skillet to describe any of my pans.

Want to do something delicious and very easy?? Take a lb. of any kind of pasta, cooked....add a can of tuna fish, garlic, and olive oil ( about 2 tbls), or any oil..........mix together and you don't ever have to be hungry!! I add parmesan cheese, too! I make this a lot.........if you have pasta and tuna in your pantry, you're good to go, and it is DELICIOUS!!!

Why do you not use the word skillet? It is a valid word for a kitchen tool!

This was very tasty. We loved it and will fix it at least once a month.

I like to add a can of mixed vegetables in with my tuna macaroni casserole, and haven't experimented yet with the white wine I also like shells and cheese too. 03marjorie5077195

I've made something similar to this for over 40 years....left out what I didn't have on hand but usually added a can of drained peas to get the kids to eat their veggies. It was a go to fast meal on nights when I worked late. However I had never added wine or thought to add parsley paprika or sour cream I just added a bit more milk and different spices til I thought it tasted good. I usually tweak most recipes to what my family liked at the time. I even used boxed mac & cheese and tossed in browned hamburger with some spices. You would be amazed and the things you can make with what you have on hand!

This is pretty good. The sour cream really gives it extra flavor.

I have all that in my pantry.

i keep everything but paprika and wine. which is so miniscule in the recipe. what else is so expensive?

How funny! last night I made macaroni and cheese but I found it too plain, like it needed something, so I saute mushrooms, and mix vegetables in garlic butter, I made the macaroni and cheese with garlic butter also and put the parsley flakes. I had not seen the recipe before, so I glad I saw it now, because had a lot of left overs, so I will add the tuna, sour cream and the wine and I have dinner for tonigh ready. My husband and I love left overs.

sounds very fattening

I substitute fat free plain greek yogurt for sour cream in everything with good results.

Why do you people always have ingredients that are not easily obtained or a person cannot afford to get? Why not include ingredients that can be substituted, instead and make it easier to use your recipes?

You didn't give a response to my questions!!!

May I ask what you are having a problem getting?

The Mr. Food Test Kitchen philosophy has always been quick and easy recipes with ingredients that can typically be found either in your pantry or on your grocers shelf. Thank you for your comments.

Where in the world do you live? These ingredients are easily available in grocery stores all over the place.

I live on a budget too, the only thing I see that may not be in your cupboard or expensive to get is the wine and since I dont even like that flavor I would leave it out. I have left it out of many recipes and they were all still good.

Most of this you can even get at the dollar store - mac and cheese boxed dinner mix, tuna, sm can of sliced mushrooms, parsley, mustard and probably the paprika. Wine you can leave out if you want that only leaves sour cream which cost less than a dollar in the grocery.
