On any given day you’re in a rush, right? Need a very easy and quick meal that you can make from staples found in your pantry? There is no excuse to order pizza out. It is expensive and calorie laden. Here is the answer – pasta salad. Most anything added to pasta will make a good meal. Another good point about pasta is that most people who can boil water can do pasta. So in the time that it will take you to boil water plus another 10 minutes dinner can then be served.
Pasta does not always have to come with a sauce that takes time to make. Just a little oil, seasonings, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry,or beans in any combination will work. You can’t get any easier than that! Be creative! If you don’t trust your creativity check out the recipes on the pasta boxes. I have found most of them very good.
Tuna salad with pasta is a standby in my house. Start with just a tuna salad. I love this and often have it along side a tossed salad and Italian dressing. The Athlete prefers a Panini which is very good with Havarti cheese with dill. Yummy!
Bring the water to boil and then put in pasta. Cook according to directions on the box. Now assemble the tuna. This is what I use:
Tuna Salad with Pasta
- 2 cups of uncooked pasta shells ( or pasta of choice)
- 12 oz. can of Solid White Albacore Tuna- drained
- 1 teaspoon of mustard
- 2 teaspoons of dill relish
- 1/4 cup sliced green olives
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon of mayonnaise ( you could need a little more depending on amount of liquid added with pickles and olives)
- 2 cups of pasta shells according to directions. Drain.
Mix drained tuna with the remaining ingredients and stir in the hot pasta. Enjoy right out of the bowl or wait and serve with crisp greens or a side salad. Serves 4
