Typically, His Lordship and I look forward to sandwiches after a weekend run.
I had all the necessary ingredients to make a tuna melt.
Except I didn’t.
I was missing cheese.
Debating on whether to run back out (puns!) or omit it (gasp!), I found leftover four cheese ravioli filling.
The ultimate tuna melt was born.
Sandwiches for Sunday.
I’m making it a thing.

8 oz. tuna packed in olive oil, flaked
