I do not take tuna casserole lightly. The night my mom made Tuna Helper growing up were good nights. However, it’s become tough to find Tune Helper in store, so I’m left making my own. This dish is an absolute childhood favorite of mine, and no half-ass tuna casserole would do. So I made sure this one was super creamy, had lots of peas and barocline, and plenty of tuna. Truly a childhood dream.

I used Yellowfin Tuna for this recipe because it has a third of the mercury of White (Albacore) Tuna, which means more tuna for you!
