    PanNan's Note:

    Some of the best recipes are the most simple. This is one of those. I prefer it just as written, but you may add any ingredients you choose such as chopped onion, scallions, chives, water chestnuts, chopped hard-boiled eggs, lemon-pepper, dill, parsley, etc. I often take this to potlucks when I need a quick and easy (and economical) dish. I've never had to take home left-overs. Tuna pasta salads can be found at many pot lucks. Albacore tuna is plentiful on the Pacific Coast, and this recipe represents the Western U.S.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine the cooked and drained pasta with the drained tuna, chopped celery, peas, and mayonnaise, using only enough mayonnaise for the salad to be creamy.
    2. 2
      (If it's made ahead, you may need more because the pasta will absorb the mayo.) Chill at least 1- 2 hours before serving.

      This was a yummy salad! It was creamy and delicious, and the peas added just the right flavor. I originally gave this recipe 4 stars, but I just had the leftovers for lunch and added some miracle whip instead of mayo, and it was even better! I guess the miracle whip added the extra zip I was looking for. I'm upping my rating! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks, PanNan!

      Wonderful. I made it and took it to work for lunch. I added diced cheddar cheese just because I love it! It was great! Thanks for the recipe!

      Really enjoyed this easy tuna pasta. I like the peas in it, and I used light mayo, very good. Would make a nice lunch time meal.
