Cold Tuna Salad with Pasta
whole grain pasta shells
tuna, packed in water, drained
onion flakes, dehydrated
cheese, shredded, fat free
1Boil pasta and rinse in cold water.
2Drain cans of tuna and place in bowl with lid.
3Combine the two: pasta and tuna.
4Re-hydrate minced onion flakes with 2 T. warm water.
5While 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.
6Add the shredded cheese.
7Strain any excess liquid off the onion and add along with the black pepper to mixture.
8Add mayonnaise last and stir thoroughly. Cover and let chill in refrigerator. Makes 5 generous 1/2 cup servings.
9I will usually scoop a 1/2 cup onto a large lettuce leaf, but it is also good served with crackers.
