  • Very nice meal that won't heat up the house.
    I didn't have enough basil so I added parsley and capers.
    Yum - a few black olives and this would be similar to a no cook version of putanesca.

  • An Italian friend told me it's a tradition to eat tuna spaghetti sauce on New Years. It sounded awful to me, but she gave me some and it was delicious but I never made it myself. I will try this or some modified version of it. - 8/2/10
