If you’re looking for a cheap and easy meal prep option, we have just the one for you. I’m a big tuna lover. Mainly because it’s quick and easy, but also because it’s cheap. I was a little worried about this casserole tasting overly “fishy”, but to my surprise it did not. I would definitely make it again and probably will soon! However, beware when ordering carrots from instacart…if you want only four…you may end up with four bags 🙂
We borrowed this recipe from Paleo Grubs.
