“I am a 68 yr. old, Italian cook and never ate at McDonalds. When many Americans spend more time watching cooking shows than cooking and eating fresh food, perhaps Rene Redzepi should be on the US version of Time Magazine.

“I never buy tomatoes during the year. They are tasteless and hard-skinned. To prove my point, few years ago I threw one against the wall and it bounced back. We only eat our garden-grown tomatoes.

“Sports and other hobbies do not take a backseat with American children. One reason why they feed on fast food,and fritos and dips. I am an Italian immigrant and grandmother of three. I see these bad eating habits with my own grandchildren. On the other hand, when my children were growing up they ate fish with bone at the age of 3.”

“1 - 5 oz. can of good tuna with olive oil - $1.99 cooked with 1 lb. of spaghetti (1.00) feeds 4 persons. Knowing what to buy is as important as knowing how to cook it.

“love it..sometimes without the tuna just good old garlic and oil”

gavrielle on Jun 6, 2012 at 18:34:32

“That's fifty-cents a day more than most food stamp recipients have. Oh, and try buying the olive oil and still having enough money left to spend on the rest of the food when you're done. Works great if you've already got it, but not in a kitchen that's been empty for months.”

“And that tuna contains ~520mg of sodium. There's also no fresh fruits or veggies in that meal. Not real healthy but certainly filling. The point is to be able to prepare healthy meals. A person can just eat Ramen, but you won't live long.”

“But when you're diabetic and can't have alot of carb and need fresh freuit and veg. it's very difficult! I'm not on food stamps, but I can barely afford to eat the proper foods. I am disabled and live on social security, but I make too much money to qualify for assistance (by$36). But thanks for the recipe, sounds good.”

“1 can of tuna does not feed 4 people an adequate amount of protein and pasta costs 1.68 a pound”
