Tuna Sauce for Pasta

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Barbasol

This is an "Oh so easy" way to have fresh sauce for dinner, even if you are just coming in the door from work! This is my adaptation of my Italian mother-in-law's sauce that she loved to cook all day. Makes a wonderful Lenten dinner!!

Made this and another sauce for Shabbat dinner with in-laws and didn't even get to try it - it disappeared while I was puttering around. Must have been good, and definitely easy/healthy!
