I used Bumble Bee Albacore solid white, packed in water. The total fat for 2 cans is 2g, and sat fat is 0g. I also use no fat milk there is 0 fat in this milk. Using these 2 products will lower the Nutritional Information by 2.84g total fat and approx 0.945g sat fat.
I am becoming a pasta fan with recipes like this one!! This was excellent, simple and quick. I, too, used skim milk but I added to the fat by replacing one can of tuna with a can of smoked oysters. Hope everyone uses real parmesan cheese and not the cardboard stuff. It makes a difference. Thank for the recipe.
This was okay,but kind of bland.Nest time I make it,I will substitute imittation crab,and maybe some canned tiny shrimp,will use some Old Bay seasoning and garlic.
