  1. Do you think this would work with a can of tuna? If yes, then how many cans would you use? Or would it just have a weird taste with tuna?

    1. Yes, you could. I would use 16 ounces of canned tuna which would be the equivalent for this. If you think that might be too overpowering you can back it off just a bit.

  2. Hi! So I know it’s way after February, but I am freezing meals in preparation to welcome a new baby in the next three weeks. I made this dish tonight but substituted turkey for the chicken and elbow macaroni for the rice. Turned out fabulous! Thank you for your great recipes…keep them coming!

    1. Optional…sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. But if you’re freezing, it would probably be a good idea to blanche it first. You could also use frozen broccoli.

  3. I just made this with brown rice and it turned out great. It’s really filling and the cost per serving is really low. It doesn’t have a ton of flavor though so we added salt and pepper at the table. But the lack of tons of flavor, in my opinion, puts it in there with the comfort foods, good for a cold winter night. I do have to say though that my picky two year old ate it and enjoyed it (thank you cheese!). We’ll be adding this to the list to remake especially while our kids are young or when they are going through that starving teenage phase.
