Sometimes the simple salads are the most delicious. I remember when we were kids mom making this often in the summer; especially when we had fresh peas in the garden. I didn’t have fresh peas today but canned or frozen peas work well too. It’s refreshing on a hot day and a great crowd pleaser for a back yard party. Just a few simple ingredients make for a great combination.
Simple Tuna Pasta and Pea Salad
- 8 o.z. pasta ~ macaroni, penne, or campanella

Cook pasta according to package directions; rinse with cool water and drain well. Drain tuna. Add tuna, mayonnaise, salt and pepper to drained pasta. Stir in peas and chill before serving.
