Don't be intimidated by the number of ingredients and that so many of them are substitutes. It's really quite simple to make and tastes terrific. The substitutes make it healthier.

This was quite good and a nice way to use up some canned tuna. It did take a long time for the sauce to thicken after adding the milk though. I added the amount of mustard as specified in the recipe. However, next time I will add some more. DH enjoyed this change of pace pasta. Thanks.
