“I tore the page out of the magazine this is from, but I think it is Martha Stuart Living. I have no idea from what year it is from. I have made this into a vegetarian version by leaving out the tuna. We thought it was very tasty and used whole wheat pasta from the farmers' market, It's quick and easy, making it a great choice for a weeknight meal.”
