My daughter loves tuna...mainly in a tuna sandwich or my tuna macaroni salad. But, sometimes I like to serve it in a main course. I checked with the good folks at "Chicken of the Sea" and came up with this recipe that was a winner with my whole family! (Cook time does not include time if using microwave)

I steamed some fresh veggies to put on top of the tuna mixture (green beans, carrots, corn, and broccolini) and it turned out so delicious! It's a very light dish. I could see women delighting over it, but hungry men would probably accuse me of trying to put them on a diet! :) My daughter and I loved it!!!
