I call this a casserole, although I realise, casserole is probably far from the correct word. It a creamy sauce of Tuna, mushrooms and capsicum which you ladel over steaming rice. It's one of my favourite dinners and my 2 year old daughter loves it and if my brother knows I'm making it, I better set a place at the table for him. It is pure comfort food to me - creamy, tasty and served on a bed of carbs!! An easy dish to make when friends are coming over, because I can have it almost ready before they arrive and just serve with some salad.
- 2 ounces mushrooms (small)
- 1 small red bell pepper (green or red)
