    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This is a very nice main dish for two made with pantry ingredients. It goes together easily and the flavor is excellent. Be sure to use tuna packed in oil as it is more flavorful. I love the taste of the fennel in this. I am not sure of the source of this recipe.

      This was a lifesaver for me as the fridge quit on us and we had cans and pasta left in the house (no dairy, eggs, meat, etc.). This was very easy to put together. I used less olive oil, and skipped the red pepper flakes. I tasted after simmering and found that the tomatoes added enough acid so I didn't add the lemon. The fennel seeds did indeed add interest, but next time I would add more. Also, perhaps some more spices - cumin I think would go great with this. Thanks for posting!
