Reach way into the back of your pantry, behind half-full boxes of pasta and cans of broth, and you'll probably find 1-2 cans of tuna too. Convenient tinned tuna is too often relegated to emergency food status, mixed half-heartedly with mayo, salt, and pepper on days where you just can't shop for anything else. Break the trend and turn your tuna into something you could be proud to serve! These mouthwatering recipes turn boring old tuna into a reason to get excited for your next meal.
