Very good and easy - enjoyed by all. My can of tuna was only 7 oz and I probably used more of the other ingredients (as I did not measure) - very good! Thanks for sharing!
This was a great way to cook tuna. I get tired of eating it straight from the can and this is very simple but delicious. Thanks KateL for the recipe!
