Simple tricolor veggie pasta and tuna
With Italian roots, you bet I love pasta!
When I was walking through the food aisle in the local dollar store one day, I noticed a shelf full of tricolor pasta. Not being one to eat much spiral-shaped pasta, I walked on by. Then I remembered how much my children love pasta and tuna.
Being so inexpensive, I figured I wouldn't be out much money if it didn't work out well.
Here's my recipe for tricolor pasta with tuna. This is a great as a side dish or for lunch.
Substitute chicken for an even heartier meal!
Boil pasta for about 10 minutes, until fork tender.
- 12 ounce bag of dried tricolor spiral pasta
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 5 ounce can of tuna, drained
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 4 cups water
- Boil 4 cups of water in a pan.
- Add pasta
- Boil pasta on high heat for about 10 minutes or until fork tender
- Turn off heat. Drain pasta. Return pasta back to pan.
- Add in mayo, drained tuna, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix well.
- Refrigerate until well chilled.
- Serve as a side dish to a main course.
- Optional: Add extra tuna or substitute chicken for a fulfilling lunchtime meal!
