A creamy pesto sauce tossed with spinach, farfalle and tuna. For a richer sauce, use half a pot of double cream instead of the milk.
Used different ingredients. 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. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. Delicious! Great change from traditional tuna pasta casserole. I couldn't find creamy pesto seasoning so followed a previous review and made white sauce and added pesto seasoning (spice section of grocery store). White sauce recipe was 4 Tbsp. butter, 4 Tbsp. flour and 3 cups milk. Also added about 2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper, and 2 tsp. of pesto seasoning. My husband loved it and my two little ones (daughter 2 1/2 & son 15 mos.) ate it also! Will definite make again! - 29 Sep 2008
Good, filling meal. I messed up a little bit and used pesto sauce instead of pesto sauce MIX, but I added a tbsp of flour to thicken my watery mess up a little bit and it worked great. I also recommend adding some seasoning at the end to spice it up a little bit. The tomatoes really work well in the dish, setting themselves apart from the rest of the dish as a refresing bite without being distracting. Would like to try again with the mushrooms (my girlfriend doesn't like them!), I'm sure it's great. - 29 Sep 2008
