    Cher Jewhurst's Note:

    Three-color pasta, cubed cheese, tuna, and roasted sweet peppers blend into a spunky salad that we enjoy over 2 suppers during hot summer days. This is an excellent salad that I've served with or without cashews since sometimes I forget those. Fresh basil is essential to this recipe and we just have some fancy fresh breads and butter with it. I don't recall which of my magazines I got this from but it's favorite of mine.

      This really is an excellent version of pasta salad with tuna. I used cheddar cheese and a creamy roasted garlic Caesar salad dressing with 2 (7 oz.) cans of tuna (we like a lot of tuna). I also used a combination of roasted red and yellow peppers, which livened up the color even further! I did not use the cashews or lettuce (since I packed this in a container to take to work for lunch). I think the fresh basil really punched things up, but the whole recipe was delicious! Thanks for sharing! Made for Fall PAC 2012.
