    This recipe has been a favorite of my family for a long time. We use the same ingrediants, minus the cheese but put it together differently. I use frozen peas, not canned which you can pre-cook for 5 minutes before use or just toss in frozen. I mix the mushroom soup, tuna and 3/4 of the crushed chips together and put in the casserole dish. I use the remaining 1/4 bag of chips on the top, and bake, covered for 20 minutes until heated. Just like how my sisters and I would fight, my kids fight over this dinner and always want seconds.  -  02 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used most of the ingredients given..the tuna, soup, potato chips,cheese..but added a few of my own as well...wide egg noodles, frozen veggie blend, mozzerella cheese. I also sprinkled real bacon bits on top of each serving. Delish!!  -  18 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband was longing for a recipe similar to this that his mother used to make. This had a few additions that I think made it even better. When I made it I added 1/2 soup can of milk and blended it with the soup. To this I added a 4 oz. can of drained, sliced mushrooms. It did need a bit more zip, so next time I think I will add some paprika to the soup mixture.  -  07 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
