  1. I love tuna casserole recipes and this looks fantastic! Might I suggest using Wild Planet’s sustainable canned tuna? Since we fish using sustainable practices and source from pristine waters, our albacore has less Mercury and more Omega 3s than the leading national brands. We also pack them in their own natural juices, making for a fantastic flavor! Thanks again for the post, looking forward to following!
