RECIPE OF THE WEEK


This is a "family recipe" that I consider to be a comfort food. Strangely enough, all of the women in our family love it, but none of the men care for it at all. So when my mom and daughters and I are together we always make our version of Tuna Casserole to enjoy.

TUNA CASSEROLE

1 can tuna, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup sliced green olives w/pimientos
3 T.flour
1 to 1-1/2 cups milk
2 T. butter or margarine
Salt and pepper to taste

5-6 white potatoes, boiled and mashed with milk, butter, salt and pepper.

Saute chopped onion in butter or margarine in skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in flour and add milk slowly until the consistency of gravy. Add salt and pepper to taste.Add tuna and sliced olives and stir well until heated through. Remove from heat.

Spray casserole dish with Pam or similar spray. Pour gravy mixture into casserole. Spoon mashed potatoes to cover top of gravy mixture. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 350* for about 20 minutes to heat through. Serves 5-6.
