Very good and easy to take as a lunch because it doesn't need refrigeration. However, there's not enough tuna in recipe--it could easily be doubled or tripled. If you do this, do not add the salt because canned tuna already is salty. I've also used cubed, cooked chicken breasts, which also is excellent.

I was thrilled to have all of the ingredients on hand. I liked it far better than my husband. Sorry, I won't be making this again.

Love this meal! So very simple and delicious. Especially love making it in the spring/summer since the only cooking is the pasta. Thank you! (Been making this for years, and am just now rating...yum!)

Very good, tasty and simple. I did modify the recipe a bit to adjust it to our personal taste: we're big garlicg fans, so we used 3 cloves, thinly sliced, and also added piquillo roasted peppers (if you like red peppers and happen to find a jar of this, please try them...piquillos grow in the northern part of Spain and are possibly the best roasted peppers I ever tried). Thanks for sharing, this is a great and very easy recipe.

I thought this recipe was easy and good. I added half of a large onion, diced, and I didn't use the exact spices. I used garlic salt, dried parsley, and dried Italian seasoning with the peppers, tuna and pasta. I will make this again!
