DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare rice according to package, preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place tuna and onions in large mixing bowl. Squish plum tomatoes in your hand to yield smaller pieces of them. Once done, mix tuna, onions and tomatoes together.
  • Ten minutes or so before rice is done cooking, place milk in a medium saucepan, add pepper and cornstarch. Whisk until the cornstarch doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. Add in butter and turn a burner on to med-hi.
  • Continue whisking, or the milk will burn. Once the milk mix gets hot enough to start boiling, it will thicken, turn off burner, and whisk for another 30 seconds.
  • Add milk mixture to the tuna mixture. Stir mix until everything is well incorporated.
  • Add rice to tuna mixture. After everything is well incorporated, pour mix into a 9x13" casserole dish. Place in oven and bake for about 35 minutes. If you want a crispier top, raise temperature to 400°F.
  • Take out of oven and enjoy!
