Mediterranean Tuna and Rice Pie

This Mediterranean Tuna and Rice Pie is a flavour explosion that will satisfy everyone who eats it.

This Mediterranean Tuna and Rice Pie includes rice, onion, garlic, canned tuna, eggs, milk, sun-dried tomatoes, onions and fetta cheese.  You could add mushrooms and olives if you wish. It will take 30 minutes to put together and 45 minutes to an hour of baking, but in my humble opinion, the time is worth it. I make it as a big pie to serve the family, but I also make in a mini loaf pan for work lunches.
