for sure I'll share, but I think I'll try this recipe with a less
expensive canned tuna.
Almost $10 for one meal for the two of us is too rich for my blood,
unless of course you take me out to wine and dine me,
now that's a different bag of beans or is it can of tuna

I've made this with fresh tuna, and it didn't come out as good. I usually add capers but forgot. The tuna I buy is like 2.50 a can. Cento or pastene. I did write more on the subject, didn't put up the entire post. That really expensive Italian tuna is ok but I like the mid level best.

Sounds really good, Reed. Thanks
He realizes that it called for oil packed tuna. I won't eat canned tuna, can barely even stand the smell of it when opened and that's why he makes tuna salad when I'm not home for the most part. Therefore, fresh if I'm eating too.

Don't know if you have Publix where you live but they have the Genova on BOGO thru today, $7.29 for two 4-packs. Even at $7.29 for one 4-pack that's less than $2 a can. We also found it at Costco previously and Craig liked it, though they didn't have it last time we were there or we overlooked it.
