Tuna Pasta Salad

Saturday, August 8, 2009

I love cold tuna pasta salad but it smells up my house. I wish canned tuna didn't smell so bad, it tastes so good! I know this is lame, but I can't wait for fall so our TV shows are back. We've spent the summer watching Friends reruns, which happens to be the best TV show ever by the way!

12 ounces pasta shells or macaroni, cooked and drained
12 ounces canned tuna, drained
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup frozen green peas, cooked
1 1/2 cups Miracle Whip
Salt and pepper

Combine the cooked and drained pasta with the drained tuna, chopped celery, peas, and mayonnaise, using only enough mayonnaise for the salad to be creamy. Chill at least 1- 2 hours before serving.

I agree about the smell of canned tuna. I switched entirely to the pouches. Your salad looks excellent.

I will have to try those pouches. Thanks for that tip.

Pasta salad sounds great.

I don't know why I never thought of cold tuna with cold pasta as a salad before. I often make a warm tuna/pasta casserole - they are a natural fit!

Yeah, I agree about the smell of canned tuna. My cats, however, love the stinky smell!

On another subject - were you as happy as I was when Jeff won the coup de tat? I can't wait to see him use it!!!

I love tuna salad. We made it with onion, green olives and boiled eggs.

But yours sounds great I'll have to give it a try.
