Brush with egg but this is optional. Bake at 425 for 30-45 minutes until brown. It takes a long time to cook the crust thru even though it is only on top. Cool a little and serve.

    We do the same thing with my husband's chili and have made the same recipe with leftover chicken and chicken broth (instead of pea juice) plus the rest. Also good with mushrooms and almost any vegetable. It is a snap since it has no bottom crust to worry about.

    I have made this creamed tuna for over 50 years since I was a child. I search out that brand of peas because i think they are sweeter. None of this is ever wasted.

    Salmon and a whole wheat baguette that i got for .89 at the grocery store clearance rack Saturday. May roast some broccoli or just heat up some frozen peas.

    Last night was leftovers. I think I will start trying some of these tuna recipes I've been saving. Tonight I'll try tuna patties.

    Edited to change dinner: I worked a couple hours this afternoon starting the old shed tear-down and I'm exhausted. Falling back on an easy old stand-by of pasta and veggies. Maybe I'll do the tuna patties tomorrow.
