Super easy to make, used chicken soup instead of mushroom as hubby does not like that.

We partly doubled the recipe … double soup, double tuna, double water, double cheese, extra pepper (no salt) but stuck with 300ml of cream. I also choose to add pasta and shallots only for the final hour.
It was a huge hit even with the two supposed ‘tuna haters’ who both had seconds hahaha
Great family feed!

I haven’t tried this yet but I’m definitely going to. When I was growing up mum use to cook this and I loved it but she use to add some curry powder and chopped up hard boiled eggs 😋❤

Outstandingly delicious! Super impressed with how scrumptious this recipe was 😋😍 I made a few adjustments to suit our familys tastes – I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom soup, added an extra 400mls of cream, 1 tsp of curry powder and a good squirt of mayonnaise. I added the pasta with 1hr to go, cooked on high for 3.5hrs in total. I also added a squirt of lemon juice when adding the grated cheese (as suggested in a previous review) and omitted the salt completely. Will definitely make this again,
✅ Great recipe Wendy Herne, thanks for sharing it 😊

Love this recipe, have make it several time. My husband who is not a huge pasta fan also loves it. It is in the slow cooker for tonight’s dinner. Thank you Wendy a real winner 🙂

We love this recipe but I did find that the pasta became very soggy when I added it at the beginning. I now add it about 45 minutes before serving and it turned out fine. I also add broccoli if I have some.

What size (ml/Oz) can of condensed soup did you use? They vary around the world.
February 7, 2020
Delicious, super quick and simple!
This is one of my favourite recipes. I use mushroom soup as I am vegetarian.
February 4, 2020
I cooked this last night and it was absolutely beautiful. Next time I’ll double the ingredients so we have seconds.
Very tasty! Used cream asparagus soup instead of the mushroom, added a bit more corn and a pack of mixed frozen veges I wanted to use up to it. Big hit

❤ the recipe – so simple & minimal effort- win, win!!
August 8, 2019
This was so easy and tasty, i used cream of asparagus soup as i love that flavour with tuna. My partner and our one year old loved it, plenty left over for lunch too. Will cook this one again, thank you

Used chicken soup added cauliflower and brocoli as well had no carnation milk so used coconut cream was amazing did not need cheese due to the richness of the milk
May 28, 2019
Unfortunately my pasta went glugggy, I used gf pasta, next time I will try it without and serve with rice. Had a lovely taste
April 17, 2019
Absolutely love this! I’ve changed the Mushroom soup to cream of chicken and found it much nicer to be honest! Yes mixing tuna with cream of chicken soup sounds strange but it totally worked a treat 😃😃
February 21, 2019
Made it awhile back was great. Changed it up and did chicken bacon and mushroom instead of tuna. Sensational. Any one know the calories for the tuna recipe here
September 24, 2018
Quick, easy and really tasty. I made as per recipe and will make regularly.
September 21, 2018
Definitely going to be a regular in my house now!!! Soooooo easy!!
Both Hubby and 7 year old miss loved it.
Used Cream of Chicken soup due to mushroom allergies and swapped the corn and peas to 2 cups of frozen mixed vegies, might add more next time 😉
I just served it with some brown rice.
September 5, 2018
You could leave them out if you prefer 🙂
Just a quick question do you have to use shallots?
July 12, 2018
We had this yesterday. I used cooking cream rather than evaporated milk, and cream of chicken soup rather than the mushroom.
Added a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice when I added the cheese, which gave a lovely zing and also helped cut through the creaminess.
Delish! Will definitely do this again!
this was really tasty, instead of cream and corn kernals i used creamed corn and it cooked on low for 2 hours glad i was home as it started sticking to the edge, but was a great dish
July 8, 2018
My gosh I usually make a mean mornay . But this was delicious 😁😁😁😁 I added some epicure cheese with the tasty…had a small chunk leftover in fridge and used vegeroni spirals. Cream instead of evaporated milk. Definitely make again
June 18, 2018
I’m not a tuna fan but this is delicious. A regular for me now.
June 3, 2018
This was absolutely delicious. My 5 and 8 year olds loved it too. I used a diced brown onion instead of the shallots and only needed 4 hours on low for me.
May 30, 2018
Loved this. Thank you.
April 22, 2018
This was so easy and tasty. I had to add a little more liquid later on in the cook as it was a little too thick to cook the pasta through and I would halve the cheese next time but was really good.
April 7, 2018
Lovely dish better than I used to make. I used light condensed milk and tuna in springwater instead turned out awesome. Thank you to original poster.☺☺
April 1, 2018
Made this for Good Friday lunch and it was so good. Really good flavour and very tasty. YUMMO
February 25, 2018
Quick and easy the whole family loved it. Making it again tonight. Fussy son tried it but said it tastes like chicken.
Whole family loved it. Even fussy son tried it and said “Yum taste like chicken”. Quick and easy, ready in 3 hours on high.
August 30, 2017
Winner! Thanks from me and my 18 month old son. 🙂
June 11, 2017
Can you freeze left overs
May 30, 2017
Awesome dish! Love it, fussy toddler ate two bowls. Next time I’m going to leave out water and tuna brine and cook pasta separately just to el dente and see how that turns out.
May 29, 2017
What kind of cream do you use for this recipe?
I would use either myself 🙂
May 28, 2017
What can I use instead of canned soup? Stock maybe? Not a fan of canned soup.
absolutely delicious,,,I used light carnation milk,only because that’s all had,,made no difference,,,delicious
This was so easy to make and very tasty, I will definitely be making this again.
May 27, 2017
Does tuna have to be in brine or could it be spring water I have plenty of tims need to use
yummo,,,,definitely on the menu for tea over the weekend..
Made this several times with broccoli, also very tasty
If I make this and stir in cooked pasta at the end would I maybe use less liquid ingredients ?
May 26, 2017
I HATE Tuna with a passion….. Family luvs it tho. Decided to make this for them as I had no idea what I wanted to cook for dinner!!! I decided to try it to see if the pasta was cooked. OMG…. I cant tell you how much I devoured straight from the cooker!!!! Everyone luved it too. This stuff is pure heaven!!!! Wendy Herne you are an angel. This is now a once a week meal. Thankyou so much. I still dont like tuna but I sure do luv this! If i could give it 20 stars out of 5 I would!!
May 4, 2017
Could I use normal milk in place of the cream / evaporated milk? 😊
January 30, 2017
1 cup measure is 250ml size
January 26, 2017
What size is the cup you use please? This sounds delicious I can’t wait to try it out.
January 24, 2017
Made this the other night and invited my fiancées mum, brother and 4yo sister over, the 4yo DEMOLISHED her bowl and everyone asked for seconds, also served it with a salad. Such a hit in this household, I’m making it again tomorrow morning, setting the slow cooker on while I’m at work! Woohoo!
December 30, 2016
Try replacing the Mushroom soup with Asparagus or celery soup
December 28, 2016
So good. Demolished by my family of 2A and 3C aged 4 to 14. 5 hrs was to long for my cooker, 3.5 to 4 is more likely. Thought it would be salty, but wasn’t. Definitely will be done again (& again…)
November 23, 2016
What could i replace the mushroom soup with, as we have allergys to mushrooms..
August 22, 2016
This was really good ! I was a bit concerned it would have too much fluid in it but all that was absorbed by the pasta. Yum!
July 29, 2016
I have a 5.5L slow cooker, how much would this recipe fill it?
April 6, 2016
This is a Huge hit in my household, my fussy daughter even eats it 🙂
