Tuna Spaghetti Pie

I'm a real pasta fan and I like fish as well, so I decided to combine the two. When my granddaughters are over, I make this dish in tart tins, so each girl can have her own pie. That works for both pint-size and senior-size appetites.—Mrs. Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario

    We thought this was pretty good. I used 4oz angel hair instead of spaghetti. Also I used light sour cream. I think this had a decent flavor. I wasn't blown away, but it was tasty enough for me to make it again. I think next time I'll add in some sweet red pepper.

    I made this in a square 8x8. Used whole wheat noodles, substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream and added a cup of chopped kale, lightly steamed. Really enjoyed it!
