Easy Tuna Pasta Salad

Ciliest's picture
A delicious meal or for a snack. Quick and easy to make, watch and learn!
  Water packed tuna 1 Can (10 oz)
  Fusilli 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Mayonnaise 2 Tablespoon

Boil about 2 cups of water, and add your pasta.When it has finished cooking (usually about 8 - 10 minutes), drain and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Open your can, mix in the mayonnaise and set in a bowl! Total prep is about 15 minutes. This Pasta Salad can be eaten warm or cold.

You can also add chopped onions (chives) for a little taste of something spicy, or celery & radishes for an extra crunch!

Since it is so simple to make, my kids ask for it on a regular basis! Concerned about the mercury levels? It is recommended to eat this protein a max of 3 times per week.

(You can also use canned chicken or real chicken & Turkey to change it up).Seeing as this meal is so good, so cheap, so filling and so healthy, we tend to eat this more often then the recommendation but hey, that's us!

Bon Apetit!
