Similar but different to other tuna bean recipes, this uses a lot of canned/dried ingredients to make it quick & easy. Serve with sliced tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs. Another from 365 Easy Italian Recipes.

I REALLY liked this! This is a good substitute for pasta tuna salad and the beans provide more nutrients than pasta. I served it over fresh spinach. This would be good in the summer with cantalope. Yum!

This was very nice, fresh & summery. I made a 1/2 recipe, using most of a 6 oz can of tuna. I did use the oil from the tuna, because I discovered I was out of olive oil. I also used dried thyme and quite a bit less salt. Thanks for this quick & easy recipe NOOBchef!
