Cold Tuna Salad with Pasta
Family Tested & Approved
whole grain pasta shells
tuna, packed in water, drained
onion flakes, dehydrated
cheese, shredded, fat free
Boil pasta and rinse in cold water.
Drain cans of tuna and place in bowl with lid.
Combine the two: pasta and tuna.
Re-hydrate minced onion flakes with 2 T. warm water.
While onion is re-hydrating, place frozen peas in a microwave safe bowl with 1/3 c. water. Cover and microwave for 3 minutes. Rinse peas in cold water and add to pasta and tuna mixture.
Add the shredded cheese.
Strain any excess liquid off the onion and add along with the black pepper to mixture.
Add mayonnaise last and stir thoroughly. Cover and let chill in refrigerator. Makes 5 generous 1/2 cup servings.
I will usually scoop a 1/2 cup onto a large lettuce leaf, but it is also good served with crackers.
