"The stuffing to these mushrooms was very flavorful, but my husband and I were looking for a heartier mushroom when we made these for a meal. Button mushrooms just didn''t make the grade - next time I''ll try using protabello mushrooms and I think they will be perfect."

"When I made this, I coundn''t find the Parmesan Tuna Helper so I ended up using the Alfredo kind. I don''t see how the flavor would change the recpie, but it seemed to have a lot of sauce after I added the ranch and sour cream. I had to let it simmer down for nearly 10 more mins. Next time I would try cutting back on the ranch by about half becasue the flavor over-powered all of the other ingredients including the tuna. I also toasted the fried onions in the toaster oven to crisp them up. It was overall still very tasty and my husband took all the leftovers to work the next day."

"This recipe was so easy- you just dump everything in a pot and turn the heat on and it tasted wonderful. In fact, I think the leftovers tasted better the next day after all the favors had mixed and settled. It was a little thinner than traditional "chili" -more like a soup but will definatly make it again."

"This was disappointing even for my low expetations of a mix recipe. My loaf came out about 1 inch thick and the baking time turned my loaf a very dark brown even though I shaved 5 mins off. If there is a next time, I''d use two mixes and cut another 5-10 mins off te bake time."
