This looks so good. Does the tuna melt with the light mayo taste as good?

This looks great! I would make this soup as a meal, maybe with fat free heavy cream to cut calories. Can't wait to try this!

I did a smaller pot for my daughter using fat free that same night - also used FF mayo for her tuna - I can't remember exactly, but I think the melt and the soup ended up being 7 or 8 points, and her soup was good.
