“You'll love this blend of tomatoes, tuna and black olives in a homemade tomato sauce. My mom would make this during Lent for the family, but you'll want to make it all year round. My husband (who hates tuna), raves about this dish. It's different and very delicious. Tastes even better heated the next day. Serve with some garlic bread and a salad and you have a complete dinner.” - by AIRAMA

"Even though I made a few minor changes, I gave this five stars because it's a great basic recipe - it's simple, easy, and a big hit with my family. And I always adjust recipes to suit my own taste, an..." See moreyway. I added rosemary, capers and sea salt. I had no tomato puree, so I used crushed and whole tomatoes, broken up (with a pinch of sugar). It's important to use the solid white, not chunk light tuna. I used 12 oz of solid white and didn't add it until cooking was almost done, so that it would not disintegrate. I was very liberal with the olive oil and garnished with lots of fresh basil. "
