I loved this recipe! I used 12 oz. of tuna from a can (drained) instead of a 7-oz. packet. I also added a can of Italian stewed diced tomatoes because my marinara sauce can was 24 oz. not 28 oz. I also used shell pasta since that's what I had on hand. Everything else stayed the same and it was so great! Highly recommend it!
I made this for my kids and I when my non-tuna loving husband was away on business. I was skeptical because although my kids and I like tuna I remember not really being a fan of tuna casseroles when I was younger. Anyhow it looked like a relatively quick & easy mid-week meal and I had all the ingredients on-hand so I tried it. We all really liked it....that inclues a 9-y.o. who would happily survive on PB&J & pizza for the rest of his life. He's not a fan of zucchini but said he really liked it in this dish. I halved the recipe and it made enough for the three of us to eat it two nights in a row. I love meals like this that don't have an extensive amount of ingredients and yet are still super flavorful. This is definitely a repeat!
It was good nothing fabulous. But it was about as good as I could expect canned tuna to taste in a main course meal. I was afraid the fishy taste would overtake the flavor of the recipe but it really didn't. I recommend this recipe for an easy & quick weeknight recipe.
I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of marinara sauce and seasoned it with korma curry paste. Also instead of tuna I used smoked tofu. There are so many different fun ways to change up simple recipes like this.
This pasta is so simple and delicious! I use whole grain pasta and canned tuna but everything else is the same. I am not a great cook but I can easily make this (even with my two young children running around) and have a dinner that's healthy and a hit with my family. I make this at least once a month now because it's so easy and I usually have the ingredients on hand. Thanks for a great recipe Chef John!
