Yummy! This was a great meal and was very easy... I left out the thyme because I'm not a fan of it and it was perfect! Will be making this again :)

Our apologies - we have changed the recipe to 1/4 tsp. of thyme.

Why would you not take out the thyme from the recipe ingredient list OR at least change the amount? I didn't have time to read the reviews before I made this, and the thyme made it so disgusting that my husband and I had to throw the whole thing away! What a waste of food and a huge disappointment! It left me scrambling for something else to make to put on the dinner table.

I really like tuna casserole. I added mushrooms and sour cream and minced onions. Yummy.
