* Tuna - you can add more if you want.
** I used Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
*** I use full-cream milk instead of fresh milk because I omit Step 10 for my Macaroni Recipe
**** I use a mixture of capsicums, eg red, yellow and green, to add colour to the dish
***** I use Swiss Brown fresh mushrooms
****** I use a mixture of butter and olive oil to saute

My Version:
Follow Steps 1 to 8. Add the drained macaroni to the pot. Mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning. Then, put into the casserole dish or pan. And bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. I don't bake it with the cheese as I find it too rich and creamy.
