Potatoes & Tuna Casserole-- No Pasta Added

"My SIL makes this quite often with a side dish of cooked rice and steamed broccoli. I kind of change it to suit my taste and believe it comes out perfect. Everyone finds it very tasty and without the usual pasta. I usually make it with side dish of green peas and spanish rice or simply a side salad."

  1. Very good way to use tuna. I added the full 2 cans as I only mad 1/2 the amount. I also added a can of drained corn to get our veggie in. Also after the first baking I added some shredded cheddar cheese and continued to bake until the cheese melted. Delicious. Thanks
