TUNA & BROCCOLI BREAD BAKE
COOKBOOK:Super Food Ideas - March 2009
I called it a tuna lasagna! At first glance of the recipe I thought it was going to be too much bread in a casserole dish. Well I was so wrong! It set the bake so well! Terribly easy to make and absolutely delicious to eat! I'm not a fan of tuna from a can but it was perfect for this dish.
A great way to introduce tuna in your dishes.
