  1. Absolute hit with everyone! Was very yummy and filling! Not hard to make at all.. thought pasta may dry out adding it from the start but it didn’t!

  2. My husband loved this tuna pasta bake and rated it 5 stars!
    I made few small changes, added frozen peas for extra veg and used a 500 gram packet of pasta so also added extra milk and butter. Glad that I did use extra pasta so that we have left overs.
    I felt it needed a bit of extra flavor so added some chicken salt as well.

  3. Very nice recipe made tonight!
    My partner and daughter even went back for seconds! With lots of leftovers.
    5 stars from us!

  4. Absolute perfect for a teenage son for lunches over weekend and when in from school starving. I added more veg than suggested and it was a complete meal for him. Thank you

  5. Same as above, bland and mushy. Had to add salt and hot sauce for some flavour unfortunately. My kids didn’t like it either

  6. 5 stars
