Recipe by Nif
My DS's love my tuna casserole (see Nif's Nothing Fancy Tuna Casserole), but one of them does not have a microwave at school to heat it up. I came up with this cold version of it and they both really like it. I kept it simple because after a long day at work and then making a nice dinner, I don't feel like making high maintenance lunches. My guys are 12 and 14 and can eat a lot, particularly this! You can increase the amount to make a cold salad for a gathering. Enjoy!
- 1 1⁄2 cups macaroni (or other shaped pasta)
- 1 (6 ounce) can tuna in water, flaked or chunk and drained
- 2 ounces low-fat cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes
- 2 tablespoons half fat mayonnaise, I use Hellmann's
- salt and pepper
