I'm glad I found this recipe, as I was craving some tuna casserole, and this is much better for you. I don't really like olives so I left them out, but next time I will substitute something... I could see where the olive taste was "missing." But that was my own fault. This made a nice dinner with a bit of green salad on the side. Thanks!
