    Bev's Note:

    This is a real quick fix to a week night supper, using canned tuna. Would make a second night meal using leftover tuna. Discovered in Fine Cooking Magazine.

      This made an easy, convenient, and delicious dinner. I really liked the versatility of this recipe. My husband hates pepperoncinis and capers, so, sadly, we rarely have dinners that include them. This recipe allowed me to split the tomatoes after adding the garlic and lemon stuff. I then put peppers & capers in my sauce and, taking another reviewer's advice, added red pepper flakes to his. He was thrilled with his "sauce"! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. We will definitely be making this again for a fast and tasty dinner.

      This is my favorite kinda dish! Wonderful flavor, healthy, versatile-- and with bread, it's dinner. I did leave out the pepperoncini because I just don't like it, but added more capers and lemon to compensate. Oh, and more parsley! YUM! Thanks Bev!
