I really enjoyed this recipe. It was flavorful and an interesting way to cook tuna. This is not a complaint (who doesn't like leftovers?), but I halved the recipe and could still probably get four servings out of it. Still great... thanks for the recipe Manami!

Just like another reviewer did, I increased the amount of garlic but decreased the amount of red pepper flakes. I found it spicy enough with just half the quantity asked for. I made it with whole wheat penne to increase the nutritional value. We enjoyed it very much and have enough left over for a second dinner.

See my review for #297030. This dish can be improved by adding 4 -6 anchovy fillets with the tuna. I also use a generous amount of fresh basil and serve this with fresh shredded fontina or mozzarella cheese.

This is a great dish! I actually followed the instructions straight from food network and it calls for 6 cloves of garlic, and lemon zest as well. I also used half the crushed red pepper flakes. And I served it with cheesy garlic bread. It is very simple to make and has so many pretty colors in it. I did end up having to use regular black olives though because I didn't notice I bought whole kalamata olives and I didn't have the time to pit them and chop them. Definately a keeper!
