This is something I have been making for years for my family. Taking the fixins of a tuna sandwich and combining with pasta makes for a great lunch or side dish. Serve cold. My boys always ask for "tuna-noodle"

This is a very good recipe. Will make again. Tastes good with fresh tomatoes from the garden along side the salad. I put the salad on a bed of fresh spinach...yum!!

I magically cut this to 1 serving (thanks to Zaar) and used a single serving 3 oz envelope of albacore tuna, 1/2 cup whole wheat bow tie noodles, 1/2 boiled egg, a dash of dill weed instead of relish and a dash or 2 of everything else in this recipe! Best tuna noodle salad I ever made, I will make this often too. Thanks Chef V. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.

This was a great tuna pasta salad. It had the perfect seasoning to suit most tastes. Unless you like something really spicy. I did use about 1/2 cup mayo to get it moist enough and I used a mini bow tie pasta as that is what I had. I had to cut back to 1/2 cup onion as my family is not too fond of green onions. But I will definitely make this again. Edit, I use 2 pouches of 7 oz. each for the tuna. That is plenty.
