Cooked this for the first time, really enjoyed it! Was a total winner in my house for hubby and 2 kids.

My 3 kids that range from 11 to 3 loved this dish. They went back for more and more until it was all gone. I used a brown onion diced instead of shallots as I like the crunch they add. Definitely will be a regular in our house.

Cooked it yesterday. It did burn on the edges so I will try 4 – 41/2 hours next time. Delicious.

Made this last night for dinner, absolutely the best I have ever had, thankyou Wendy Herne for sharing your amazing creation so easy and delicious. Hubby said awesome, let’s have it again soon πŸ™‚πŸ‘

Super easy and YUM! I doubled the recipe and used evaporated milk instead of cream, I also changed the mushroom soup to cream of chicken due to personal preference. I didn’t add the pasta and shallots until the last hour after reading some of the comments left before and it turned out perfectly not soggy at all. My 13 year old daughter who doesn’t like Tuna ate it, and then overheard me talking and she goes WAIT there was Tuna in that haha GOOD BUDGET AND FILLING DINNER

Quick and easy. Husband loved it – definitely make this again

I made this last week. Got four meals out of it. I did freeze it, as I’m on my own, didn’t want to eat it four days in a row

Love this recipe. Easy to prepare, makes heaps and can be easily adjusted. I add extra veggies, and use cream of chicken and corn soup which added an extra depth of flavour. Very tasty and makes alot. I usually pre cook the pasta first and then add it in. Personal preference.

Fantastic and super easy recipe.
Love something that you can throw together with almost all pantry ingredients.

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 πŸ˜‹β€

Outstandingly delicious! Super impressed with how scrumptious this recipe was πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ 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,
βœ… 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 πŸ™‚

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.

Delicious, super quick and simple!

This is one of my favourite recipes. I use mushroom soup as I am vegetarian.

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

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

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 πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

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

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 πŸ˜‰
I just served it with some brown rice.

You could leave them out if you prefer πŸ™‚

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!

Debbie White

July 12, 2018

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

I’m not a tuna fan but this is delicious. A regular for me now.

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.

Loved this. Thank you.

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.☺☺

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.


February 25, 2018

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. πŸ™‚


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 πŸ™‚


May 28, 2017

What can I use instead of canned soup? Stock maybe? Not a fan of canned soup.


May 28, 2017

absolutely delicious,,,I used light carnation milk,only because that’s all had,,made no difference,,,delicious

Paula Jackman

May 28, 2017

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


May 27, 2017

yummo,,,,definitely on the menu for tea over the weekend..


May 27, 2017

Made this several times with broccoli, also very tasty

Dannielle Palmer

May 27, 2017

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!!

Could I use normal milk in place of the cream / evaporated milk? 😊

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 fiancΓ©es 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!

Try replacing the Mushroom soup with Asparagus or celery soup

Liz K

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…)

Kay Maskell

What could i replace the mushroom soup with, as we have allergys to mushrooms..

Andrew Fraser

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?

This is a Huge hit in my household, my fussy daughter even eats it πŸ™‚
