Let the recipes roll: I am looking for a recipe for Mardi Gras dinner. I believe it came from a box of Minute Rice in the 1960s. It was made with tuna, canned tomatoes, onions, seasonings, cheese sauce and Minute Rice.

It was simple, but I can't seem to get the seasonings just right. My daughter and I would love to taste it again. Thank you.
