Pasta Salad With Tuna And Cannellini Beans

When I first made this recipe, my husband was not too thrilled with the idea of tuna. But he loved it! I think the combination of the tuna and cannellini beans really set this dish apart from many other pasta salads. Give it try!
Ingredients
  Short pasta 1 Pound
  Fresh chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Canned tuna 7 Ounce (1 Can)
  Canned cannellini beans 14 Ounce, drained, rinsed (1 Can)

  Stalks celery 2 , chopped in thin pieces
  Lemon juice 4 Tablespoon (Of 1 Lemon)
  Extra virgin olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

3. Add in the tuna, beans, onion, celery, parsley and mix well.
4. In a separate bowl, mix the lemon juice and olive oil for the dressing then pour over the salad and mix.
