I found this recipe in a magazine over a year ago but have edited it so many times it does not resemble the original. I love to make over recipes. Hope you enjoy it. I do.

10 Min


1/3 c
freshly shelled garden peas
1/2 pt
sweet grape tomatoes, halved
2 tsp
steak seasoning(sea salt, cracked pepper and garlic)
3/4 c
dukes mayo
2 Tbsp
dried parsley
3 can(s)
tuna, drained
8 oz
baby carrots, finely chopped or shredded
sweet or vadaila onion
1/3 c
sweet pepper rings with juice
8 oz
pkg of elbow macaroni

Directions Step-By-Step

put macaroni on to boil, I drop my fresh peas in so they are partially done. Follow directions of pkg for time.
while pasta is boiling, place carrots, pepper rings, juice and onion into food processor. Chop to the consistency you desire. I like mine fine.
In a large bowl, combine veggies from processor, mayo, herbs and slice grape tomatoes in half. Mix all together. If you like your pasta wet this is the right amount for you, if you like it drier, use less mayo. Drain and add tuna.
When pasta is done, drain and add to bowl. Stir well. you may eat warm or place in the fridge and serve it cold. Perfect to take along on a picnic or a potluck.
