This was a tasty change of pace. I made my own lower fat Alfredo sauce which made it take a little longer but it was an easy recipe to follow. The lemon was nice. For the volume of noodles I thought that there were too few capers and will double the amount to 2 TBS of capers next time. I also used regular tuna. This is a keeper.

It sounds good but 1384 mg sodium per serving is rather high.

I made it tonight for dinner. I loved it! I halved the recipe though. I also used whole wheat noodles, 5 oz can of tuna in water and Prego Light Homestyle Alredo

It was okay, but not as good as I'd hoped.
