  1. Nice quick (for slow cooker meal) family friendly meal, I added finely chopped capsicum, zucchini , mushrooms and carrot.

  2. This one is a no from me. It was so bland. Hubby said it was “different,” which is his polite way of saying it wasn’t for him. I won’t make it again.

  3. This was very nice I added a frozen pea and corn mix and added extra cheese because my family loves cheese. Next time I make this I will add corn flour just to thicken it up a little bit more

  4. Easy and inexpensive dish. Master 13 went back for seconds. A meal made after work done in 2hrs. Followed recipe with corn option. Quite nice and filling.

  5. 4 stars
    Simple recipe, I added whole grain mustard, half a brown onion and some paprika to the milk/flour/garlic. Along with celery, peas & corn with the tuna & cheese. Mixture was a little runny at the end of the cook so added a little cornflower & milk to get it thicker. Once cooled i added to foil freezer trays, topped with breadcrumbs & parmesan. Popped them in the freezer for when we need a hearty lunch or side dish after baby no2 makes his appearance.
