jennifer in new jersey's Note:
A very simple and quick dish that allows for a tasty and healthy meal. This is a great recipe for a foundation to make any changes. Im always pressed for time, but I still get to eat well with this. Good tuna (if tuna is what you choose to use) is a must for this recipe. Otherwise it tastes fishy. If using regular tomatoes rather than the sundried; be sure to use ripe. The olive oil measurement is a guess as I usually just put in what i feel will allow the pasta and other ingredients be coated just enough.
