Pesto Tuna Cakes are an easy and inexpensive dish to prepare using leftover mashed potatoes and pesto for an easy weeknight meal.
I know this time of year we are all looking for ways to eat a little healthier, or at least make meal time a little easier. So here’s a new one for you. I’ll admit that tuna isn’t usually at the top of my favorite foods list. I’ve never been a big fan of tuna sandwiches and it often feels like a boring protein. But tuna is super convenient, it’s got great shelf life, and is packed with all sorts of good for you vitamins and what not (super technical, I know).
So I’ve tried to come up with some dishes that my family and I can all like that uses that good for you tuna and also helps me bust some leftovers that always seem to languish in the fridge. And those leftovers are mashed potatoes. My son doesn’t like them, they are not my hubby’s favorite, and I can only eat so much of them all by my lonesome! These Pesto Tuna Cakes help to use up those leftovers and make for a great easy dinner that doesn’t take a lot of work!
