A cheesy tuna spinach casserole recipe that can be made in no time. This dish uses canned tuna and frozen spinach with cream, almond milk and cheese.
Every few months, I go through my cabinets and pantry closet to use up food that has been sitting for a while. I found some canned tuna that was still good, but getting close to the expiration date.
During this time, I also go through the freezers and check for items that have also been sitting for a while. Way in the back was a package of frozen spinach that looked to be in good shape.
This cheesy tuna spinach casserole recipe is one of those dishes that was just thrown together to use up certain ingredients. In addition to the tuna and spinach, I also used up the rest of the grated Parmesan cheese I had in my refrigerator door.
The result was absolutely delicious! In fact, I thought is was way better than the high carb tuna casserole I used to make with egg noodles.
This tuna spinach casserole recipe is one of those dishes that was just thrown together to use up certain ingredients. So, feel free to change it up to suit your own tastes.
