“Here's a fairly traditional, creamy tuna casserole. I adapted this recipe from Tara's Recipezaar Tuna Casserole to make it gluten free and mild. You can try more onion and pepper if you're not a spice wimp like (pregnant) me. I included notes to help people new to gluten-free cooking and shopping.”
1 casserole
