This is the first meal I remember making as a child for my family. There were lots of us and boy, did I make a lot of toast! For me, this is a very simple, satisfying, and quick meal as well as a comfort food. I was surprised when my kids asked for it for dinner last night - apparently they love it!

Once the tuna and peas are heated, spoon over slices of lightly buttered toast and serve.
