Tater Crust Tuna Pie

 Tater Crust Tuna Pie
I make this pie a lot because it is quick and easy to prepare (I teach during the day, so my cooking time is limited), and it's one of my husband's favorites. I like the combination of potato flakes and french-fried onions in this pastry crust...they complement the tuna/cheese filling well.
