What is your favorite memory of making this recipe?
I made this for my four year old Godson. He is an extremely picky eater and had never eaten tuna at the time. He ended up asking for seconds. I took a photo of him next to his empty pasta bowl and sent it to his parents — They couldn’t believe he ate it!
