Tuna Pie - Easy Meal #Recipe




You all know that I love a nice home-cooked meal after a busy day that doesn't require me to stand in the kitchen for hours. The life we live we really have to find meals that not only taste delicious but that are healthier and super easy to make. My whole family loves fish, I however, do not. My exception is Bumble Bee® Tuna, yum! The smell of Chunk White Albacore literally triggers memories of summer lunches at home with my mom. The best part about Bumble Bee® Albacore products is that they are an easy and delicious way to add a variety of nutrients to our diets including lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals.  As a mom I am loving that!

To appease the kids and husband I do incorporate fish in some dishes and when I was making a meal plan I decided to add Tuna Noodle Casserole to it.  Everyone remembers evenings with that traditional dish right?  Well, I decided that we aren't in love with that dish so it is time to kick it up a notch!  This is a recipe that will have the kids asking for seconds and you will not mind adding it to your meal plan rotation either - hello easy!!
