Tuna with Penne, Lemon, and Parsley

Tuna with Penne, Lemon, and Parsley

Tuna can be purchased in convenient 3- and 5- ounce, easy-to-open pouches as well as cans. Albacore tuna is more expensive, but we prefer its milder flavor. Any variety is fine as long as it's packed in water rather than oil.
