White Bean Tuna Baked Tomatoes

Aug 31, 2020 | Main Meals

Here’s your next WFH (work from home) lunch! I pulled this together with pantry staples and a few leftovers (slide 2). If you don’t have tomatoes, you can easily use zucchini as a vessel. Light and easy; prepare these the night before up to the step of stuffing the tomatoes. Just bake when you’re ready to eat! #healthylunchideas
