This got mixed reviews in our house, ranging from OK to "great!". I liked the way the ingredients really dressed up the canned white tuna. Some thought the other flavors (olives & capers) were too strong, though. Our gnocchi was a little gummy, but I don't know if that's the recipe's fault, or the brand we bought. Overall we enjoyed this dish and I will probably make again. Next time I might let everyone garnish with the olives and capers to their taste if they don't want as much.

Made for the informal *Gypsy Recipe Swap* , this was terrific in all ways. Out of necessity, I made this w/tortellini vs gnocchi & then served it w/M2Rs Recipe #146614 for a lovely meal. An easy-fix that is creamy + cheesy-rich & packed w/Mediterranean flavors makes this a grown-up variation of mac & cheese comfort food. I often look for ways to expand dishes I esp like & think maybe some combo of sun-dried tomato, mushrooms or fresh chives would be excellent adds. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-)
