"I have never been a fan of tuna casserole. Don't know why? I like tuna and I like noodles, just don't like them together. This recipe makes serving tuna different, but very tasty. The rice is the crust while the tuna, cheese and egg make the filling. I will swap out the cheese for what I have and Tobasco on while eating is yummy! Reheats well in a micorwave for lunch/dinner the next day."

Tagged for RZ Billboard Tag 2012. I took your advice and swapped out Manchego cheese since I had it in the fridge. I loved it!! It made great leftovers, too. Still very moist, and crispy top. I meant to put peas in for color, but forgot... next time! Thanks for an easy go-to meal, Shirl!
