We Italians’ have been making this for a long time with red sauce, I have made it with canned yellow tomatoes and it is great. The best way is to make a light red sauce one that is only cooked for half an hour, it that. Basil and salt. When your pasta is ready then take your canned tuna (Genova Tonno Tuna) strain it well and then add it to the red sauce for two to three minuets before your ready to serve, just long enough to heat the tuna. It wont give you the fishy tuna taste if you do that

Cursedwyvern, if you are making this with a concentrate soup/mix (like the "red and white" aka Cambells, I assume?) as with all concentrates, follow the instructions on the can. You will need to use (as this recipe calls for one cup) one cup of *finished* (read, water added), soup. If it still ends up being too salty for you, attempt Stephens fix. I hesitate to use jarred sauce myself, preferring to use a "home made" recipe, but these are easily found online. Good luck cooking!
