"It may sound unusual, but you've got to give this deliciously different dish a try...you'll find that it's easy to make and the combination of picante sauce, tuna and peas makes it absolutely scrumptious." — Campbell's Kitchen

I was looking for something different to try and came across this recipe. I followed the ingredients to a 'T' and also added a bit more spices. I wasn't a bad dish. The tuna fish is just unexpected. And while i wont be making this dish again, I will recommend it to tuna lovers.
This dish was super-easy to make. Think homemade biscuits would be good with it! The taste just didn't do if for me, though. If I make it again, I'll use chicken instead of the tuna.
I used a fresh grilled tuna steak and homemade pasta for this and it was much better. I understand that this is a "budget" dish, for lack of a better word. But it made all the difference in the world with the fresh ingredients. This is one of those recipes that gives you a starting point to experiment with and hot rod to you own tastes.
We liked this very much. I used a good quality jarred tuna in olive oil. I think it makes a difference. Honestly, I didn't think the combination of celery, peas, tuna and picante sauce would work, but they did. I did saute the celery in a little bit of olive oil first til tender, then added the peas and tuna and picante sauce. Tossed with the pasta and served with the parmesan on top.
I followed the recipe exactly and no one in my family enjoyed it.
