Pasta Sauce With Tuna, Capers and Olives

Total Time

I was hungry, and this was in the pantry. I was well pleased with the results. This is healthy, light and easy. I would have added 1 T of fresh basil and/or oregano if it had been on hand. Be careful to just heat the tuna, not to cook it or the texture will become tough. I used Kirkland solid white tuna (my favorite) but would have used Italian solid light tuna or tonno packed in olive oil if I had had it
