This pasta sauce is different from any I have tried before, and when I made it the first time my husband was skeptical. He always thought that tuna and tomatoes - or tomato sauce - don't go together; that the tomatoes make seafood smell and taste more fishy. But one taste of this sauce busted this myth for him, and it is one of his favorite pasta sauces.
