I came up with this simple and easy recipe with stuff I had around the house. I was very pleased with the outcome. A quick fix for a zingy and flavorful dish. If you want to add a little more Italian cheesy flare to it, try tossing the pasta with 3/4 cup each shredded Asiago & Fontina cheeses. Enjoy.

I made this recipe because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and was in a pinch to make dinner. Overall, I wasn't too impressed. It wasn't's just that the individual flavors didn't combine well in the dish. Probably won't make this again. Sorry!


I love this recipe! It's so quick, easy and delicious. You will definitely need the amount of oil that the recipe calls for. I also find it best to use a can of petite diced tomatoes, rather than stewed tomatoes. Also, the parmesan cheese definitely finishes it off nicely. This is a recipe I use regularly and my family loves it, especially my five year old! Thanks!

This was good! I have been to authentic Italian restuarants and had chunks of salmon in a tomato sauce. This was along those lines. I did not use the exact amounts listed in this recipe, but "eyeballed it" and adjusted where I though appropriate. I definitely did not use that much olive oil. Probably only 2 Tbsp. I also used only one can of albacore tuna, and I think the kind I used was key. I bought the BumbleBee Prime Fillet albacore tuna for the first time and it was so much better than regular albacore tuna! Not fishy or oily at all. I was pleasantly surprised. I used petite diced tomatoes instead of stewed tomatoes. I also used a little less oregano and seasoned with salt and pepper. I am surprised she left salt and pepper out of the recipe. I also did not add the Parmesan cheese. Next time I may experiment by adding peas or capers. Portion-wise, it only made two servings because I like a lot of sauce with my pasta. Overall, this was a very quick and healthy weekday meal. I will make it again!
