An incredible low carb tuna pie recipe made with cheese, green beans, and low carb flour. Creamy and filling, this tuna fish pie makes a great main dish.
I’d like to apologize for not keeping up with this blog lately. I’ve had to put in long hours and overtime at work over the last few weeks.
I’m even scheduled to work this Sunday which is Easter. Although I’m not very happy about having to work a long day on the holiday, things are winding down.
I should be back to my regular schedule in a couple weeks. I have a pile of recipes building up that I would like to try.

Since tomorrow is Good Friday, I thought it would be appropriate to post an easy fish dish for those who observe lent. This is a very easy tuna pie to make and it will be enjoyed by anyone who likes a good tuna casserole.
This tuna dish was also very delicious reheated in the microwave. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
I usually keep cans of tunafish in the pantry. So, the ingredients for this tuna pie are usually on hand in my kitchen.
The typical pie is made with peas. But, I used green beans which my family prefers and they are lower in carbs.
If you’d like a more traditional tuna casserole with noodles, I’ve made a low carb version here. I also have a very cheesy tuna bake recipe on this post.
And, if you are worried about tuna being contaminated from radiation from Fukushima, you can read more about that in this article. Personally, I think those not using responsible fishing methods are more of an issue.
