      I made some substitutions but feel pretty confident in giving this a good rating. No white flour for me so substituted whole wheat penne. Also didn't have peas so sliced one cup of carrots and steamed them separate (microwave) in case they don't cook the same rate. Didn't have tuna and it isn't a favorite for me so I used home-canned chicken and used the broth in place of the pasta water. I really like how the flavors came together. Some would find this bland but it is perfect for me. I'm on a no-vinegar (among other things) diet and this didn't have any no-nos

      There are 2 awesome parts to this dish - speed and nutrition. While I think the original is supposed to be served room-temperature, I actually mixed the vegetables, tuna (one can in water, one in oil, no extra oil added), and pasta (whole wheat rotelle) in a pan, then hours later added lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning and reheated for 3-5 minutes and served for dinner. How was it? My carnivore husband had thirds. I sprinkled some cheese on top, but loved it either way. Thanks for a great *easy* *healthy* dish!

      This was made for the March event in the Photo Forum. I really enjoyed the fresh asparagus. It gave a nice crunch to the dish. I would suggest that if you don't have fresh peas to leave them out.

      I enjoyed this tuna and pasta dish. I was lucky enough to get some fresh spring peas and the steaming process was a perfect way to take out the crunch but not make them mushy. The flavor combination of the fresh vegetables, lemon juice, and tuna was vibrant. Thank you for posting a wonderful, filling, healthy recipe.

      Good recipe. Easy to make. I didn't have the green onions so I sauteed some onion. Also I added 2 garlic cloves. Could use some italian seasoning or other herbs though.

      This was ok. I'm sure it would be much better if I had fresh ingredients instead of canned peas and asparagus (didn't see them at the market). I added a tsp of italian seasoning and 1tsp oregano too. I'm not sure if it did much, but oh well. I also used whole wheat pasta so it could be even more healthy. Thanks
