    I decided to try this for a change of pace and to use some canned tuna that was a little more strongly flavored than we like for sandwiches. As I was making it, I started having strong doubts that this could POSSIBLY be any good, and was already formulating possible scathing reviews in my mind! Imagine my surprise when I took the first forkful and it was actually GOOD! I used diluted tomato paste instead of ketchup, since I was out of ketchup, and it was fine; I also put it over some white rice. It was very easy to make. My only complaint is that the recipe vastly overestimates the amount of food that results...there's no way it makes enough for 6! I would double whatever the recipe calls for in order to feed the number you're shooting for, unless you're planning to serve it with several sides.  -  10 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It tasted pretty much like tuna & ketchup. Not worth the ingredients in my opinion.  -  13 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a really really easy and quick recipe. It's also pretty good, much better than I was expecting at first, actually. I did add some diced tomatoes as well, and served with white rice and a side salad. A reasonably healthy dinner done really quickly.  -  14 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
