Tuna Casserole

August 5, 2022

Anything Tuna is great is our house

This has long since been a family favourite in this house. From memory I think I did the sneaky – stole it from the dentist magazine – yes, that’s how long we have been having it for. 

However, now we are making it in the Thermomix. So much easier let me tell you.

We love tuna pasta bake, but this is different. Its with rice and super tasty. Yes it has canned ingredients, but you know what. Sometimes it’s just nice to open the can, put it in the bowl and mix, and this is what this meal is. Super quick. I think that is why it was a huge favourite long before a Thermomix.

Oh, standard recipe (non-Thermomix) instructions added below.
