Use the best quality canned or jarred tuna you can find.
A classic tuna casserole recipe made a bit healthier. I cook this in a Le Creuset stove-to-oven-to-table enameled cast-iron braiser/casserole dish dish, so that it's a one-pot meal. I used gluten-free brown rice pasta for this dish, but use whatever variety of pasta suits you. Use the best quality canned or jarred tuna you can find, it may be a little more expensive, but I think it's worth it. Makes 8 servings
