This is a dish i remember from my chilhood, into my teenage years. Mum used to bake it and if you are a tuna lover it was a delicious comforting meal! My favourite part was when i bit into a little piece of sweet gherkin =) Later on in years my Mum finally admitted to me she got the recipe from the back of the soup mix packet!! Now it's a family favourite! Bake it with topping or eat it like a mornay, delicious either way!
Mum's Tuna Dinner

Stir until boiling, mix in macaroni, 500g tuna, 1 chopped gherkin (sweet NOT a pickle!) and pour into casserole dish. (OR you can eat it like this, like a mornay! YUM!)
