About this recipe: A creamy sauce for pasta made with ready made pesto, fresh spinach, tuna and tomatoes.
For a richer sauce, use half a pot of double cream instead of the milk.
What a classy and utterly delicious dish! I now know how to properly wilt spinach! I love the texture of the cool chopped tomatoes over this hot savory dish. This recipe is easy and will be the star attraction at future dinner parties. Good going, Tracy! - 10 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We really liked this. Don't like the pesto sauce mix so I used garlic & herb sauce. 2 can's of tuna is plenty. Bow ties were very nice. I near doubled the mushrooms and added way more than 2 cups of spinach. Next time I will add a huge, huge pile of spinach. Also, topped with asiago. Very quick dinner. Looking forward to making this again. - 22 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a keeper for our family. I don't eat meat and I can easily leave the tuna out of this or take my share before adding the tuna last. The only change I made was to replace the milk with 1/4 cup of olive oil and a 1/2 cup of water for a healthier alternative, which is on the back of the pesto mix packet. This was delicious and I will be making it again soon, I highly recommend it! - 19 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
