This tuna pie sounds delicious, and seems to simple to make. I absolutely love tuna, so I will try this one soon. Thanks spiritwolf - you keep coming up with some really good recipes and I have printed so many of them off, I'm going to have to make a proper folder for them!

i was lookig over this recipe you have water chaestnuts in it. i dont like water chestnuts are they a must? can i skip that part or do they add flavor to the recipe?

You can leave out the water chestnuts. It is really just a matter of personal taste to put them in or not.

This sound totally wonderful. My mother used to make a baked tuna casserole that had bread crumbs and cheese on the top. It was the best. You don't happen to have a recipe kinda like that do you?

Wow I have really missed some of your cooking but I haven't done much on Mylot as I used too and with over 400 odd on my friend's lists it is hard to go around all of them as regularly as I like..but I will do my best lol. My son is an avid fan of tuna and I just love pies.I will definitely put this on my menu list for my next shop..We run out of ideas to cook and I want to do new stuff. Thanks for this new recipe it has made my day.

I like this recipe, but don't care for tuna. So I am going to use canned salmon instead. Bet it tastes just as good. Thanks for the recipe, and + rate for you again.
