Delicious Angel Hair in Tomato, Tuna and Olive Sauce

Rated as 4.24 out of 5 Stars
5

"You'll love this blend of tomatoes, tuna and black olives in a homemade tomato sauce. My mom would make this during Lent for the family, but you'll want to make it all year round. My husband (who hates tuna), raves about this dish. It's different and very delicious. Tastes even better heated the next day. Serve with some garlic bread and a salad and you have a complete dinner."

Wow, this sauce was very bland, but has potential. I made a few changes for improvement to perhaps 3.5 - 4 stars. The changes are in lieu of the original ingredients. Use: 1.) 12 oz. Solid W...

The only thing I'd do different with this recipe is either double the recipe for the sauce or not make as much Angel Hair. It seemed like there was more pasta than sauce, which I don't like. E...

This was really good and, honestly, better than I expected. Used 3 cloves garlic, since we're garlic lovers. Substituted 15oz can of tomato sauce as we did not have tomato puree. Worked fine...
