READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by katew

This is from a magazine promo advertising Sirena Tuna - there are lots of things you can alter to your own taste eg. change the herbs or use lite cream or 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream like I did .

This recipe was so easy to make. I only made one substitution, and that was using cheddar and tasty cheese together. I really loved this and enjoyed it tonight for dinner, although DH liked it he thought it needed something else, but then he is not a lover of either casserole type meals or tuna.
Well the main thing is I liked it very much and really enjoyed it.
Thanks katew
