"Whilst cleaning out my cookbooks, I decided to (for old time sake) look through my "Womans Weekly" recipe cards from the 80's. I found this tuna recipe, which I used to make all the time for my DH and myself. It was an easy meal to make on the weekend for a light lunch or for dinner served with a nice salad."
