One of my favourites...for best results be sure to use good quality tuna. I usually use Sirena brand tuna.

  2. Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave the beans until just tender, then drain. Drain the tuna over a small bowl, reserving the oil for the Dressing. Flake the tuna into large chunks with a fork.
  3. Just before serving, combine the pasta, beans tuna, herbs and capers is a large bowl then drizzle with the Dressing. Serve the salad topped with rocket leaves.

Very good tuna pasta salad which was much lower in fat than the usual. I couldn't find the tuna in chili oil, so used tuna in water, drained and added 1/2 tsp sesame chili oil to the dressing. This will also make a great workday lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

This was quite good but a litle too dry for our taste and a bit and the lemon flavor was a bit too overpowering, thanks for sharing...Kitten
