    I added garlic, a key ingredient! Also, I worried that the olives would be too sour, so I used regular, ripe canned olives, and the dish came out great, simple and quick!

    I made this tonight...sort of. I used spaghetti squash and I did not have parsley so I used Thyme and I used Panko crumbs---It was really good! I loved how fresh it tasted!

    LOVE IT!! The flavors of this dish are great together. I usually add more lemon zest and juice because it is my favorite. Since my fiance doesn't like olives, I replace them with capers. But the olives are delicious in this so I still put them in my portion. Why complain about the leftover pasta - who doesn't have pasta stored in their pantry? I rarely cook a whole pound!

    As pasta usually comes in one pound lots...what does one do with the other 1/4 lb? I prepared this with a full one pound using bow tie (Farfalle) pasta, three cans of oil packed tuna which has more flavour and more lemon zest. This recipe is open to all sorts of variations..and I also used Italian bread.

    I loved this recipe. So simple and easy. Very tasty. I used canned albacore tuna once and the first time, I steamed a fresh ahi tuna steak. Each time, my family loved it. Also, I omitted the olives as I do not like them and substituted capers instead.
