Light Veggie and Tuna Pie

"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)"

  1. 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!!!
  2. This was a very easy recipe to make. It was very tasty and was a hit with the whole family (especially the kids). A definite stayer.


(As many of you know Silent Cricket passed away on Feb. 29. Since she loved Recipezaar so much and so many on Recipezaar have shown their love for her, and have enjoyed her recipes, her personal information will remain here indefinitely just as she wrote it. Her lines at the end of this section sound somewhat prophetic as the last chapter of her earthly existence has been written.) Well, the time has come for me to change my users' name. After being, "OzCoMartha" because of having lived for three years in Australia and then moving to Colorado, I have decided to "turn over a new leaf." I chose this name because many moons ago I used to be able to "chirp" like a cricket and the "silent" refers to the present time when I'm taking a break...But, perhaps after a season, however long I decide that needs to be, I may be back and then I will fill in more details about myself...
