The fresh flavor of pesto with a creamy tuna mix makes these cheddar tuna melts a deliciously easy one-dish dinner every time. 

As a kid, I always loved when my mom would put cheddar slices on Ritz crackers in the toaster. I also loved my mom’s tuna salad recipe. Lastly, I absolutely love, love, love pesto. The fresh burst of basil makes my mouth happy every time. 

This cheddar tuna melts recipe is a delightful marriage of all three loves; the perfect quick dinner that can be prepped and made within 20 minutes or frozen for later. 

Bon appetit!
