      Made as written but left the garnish off. This is an easy recipe to make. I'll need to leave in it the 30 minutes next time I make or until I see signs of bubbling. I made this for Zaar World Tour 8 for the Bistro Babes team.

      Made for ZWT-8 & my idea of "comfort food", this took me back to a time when I waited for Mom's Tuna Bake on Fri nite & ate cold leftovers (if there were any) for breakfast on Sat! This recipe was exactly what I wanted it to be - a tasty memory that's ingredient-friendly, budget-friendly & an easy quick-fix. Comfort food memories often induce pers pref chgs & I followed other reviewers in that regard. I wanted pasta in the dish & added rice. I wanted the "zing" I didn't appreciate as a child & opt for now, so I added some sturdy shakes of Tabasco. I used lightly-moistened w/olive oil breadcrumbs for the topping vs the corn flakes. Thx for sharing this "comfort food" memory w/us. :-)
