Theresa’s Tuna Pasta Salad

    My good friend Tree makes this often in the summer and while I’m not a fan of pasta salads usually, this one is a good one and sure to become a favourite in your house. It’s a bonus that it’s easy to do too.

    Cook in boiling salted water till just al dente a one kilo (2 pounds) bag of your favourite medium to small size pasta shape. Shells are great, but just about anything will do. Drain, coat with a couple of tbsp of olive oil and allow to cool. Drain and crumble three or four 7 oz cans of tuna and add to the pasta. Stir well to combine and stir in about three cups of good mayonnaise (you may need more or less so add it one cup at a time until you’ve reached the desired moistness level). Adjust seasoning and set in refrigerator before serving.
