Great flavor! Nothing lost by leaving out the olives. The tuna was great in this making it even easier to put together. We used albacore tuna- it's a little more expensive, but I feel it tastes less "fishy"

Very good. Splurged on it with Whole Wheat noodles. Much better with wheat noodles than a tomato based sauce is.

Loved the combination of flavors! Substituted red wine vinegar for the sherry vinegar.
