Today we had an updated take on the retro tuna casserole. Well. I don't know if it is an update, as in better. But, we liked it. And, it seems more modern.
I got a panini pan for Christmas. (But, unlike that picture, it is pesto green. SO pretty.)
My kids like tuna. They don't like it on a sandwich. Just with the mayo & some almonds, maybe celery. My husband & I usually eat ours with Trader Joe's Wasabi Mayo & have it with lettuce on bread.
But, today we had it kinda 1950's ish. No greens or funny spices. I mixed in shredded cheddar cheese & piled it on bread. (Still Emily's Artisan...) & cooked it up on the Panini press.
It only seemed right to serve frozen peas on the side. (They were steamed, though. They weren't frozen anymore.)
I was surprised how much I really, really liked the meal.
