This was a very good lunch. I made it with light mayo and the dill pickle, minced. I added chopped celery and some red bell pepper that I needed to use. Colorful, very tasty and certainly very simple to do. It's a winner.

Great! I never made a tuna pasta salad with egg noodles before. It's actually not as "heavy." We enjoyed this very much, and I'll make this again. Thanx for sharing your recipe.

I halved the recipe and added frozen peas to my cooking pasta. Omitted eggs and relish. Added paprika, cayenne, and turmeric because I like the spices. I also dumped in the whole can of tuna, with the water. I saw this done on another tuna noodle recipe that described making your own cream sauce. I think the extra liquid from the tuna can allowed me to use less mayonnaise than called for here. I liked it both warm and cold.

Ultimately, this turned out well, if a bit bland. Everyone ate it. However, I was frustrated with the amount of mayonnaise in the ingredient list. I realize that it says "add more if desired." I had to add a full cup of mayo (and some leftover super-gloppy tuna salad that DH had made) to even approach a decent consistency. This was time consuming as well because I had to keep adding and experimenting.

This was an excellent salad. We used ordinary rotini instead of egg noodles and it worked out great. Thanks.

Well I scaled the recipe back to 4 servings, didn't have celery, so used some celery salt to get the flavor in, and used a little more mayo than called for. Great lunch! Thank you!
