This is a big favorite in our family that I found from my friend Michelle @ Made By Michelle. It is perfect for the warmer weather that we have been having here, and is great for summer. Our kids love it enough that they have renamed it to “Pasta Puna Pasta”, and they do a little happy dance when they find out we are having it for dinner.
And yes, that is dill that you see there. Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum.
1-1/2 c. pasta (shell, farfalle, whatever)
1 pkg. frozen peas, thawed (10 oz.)
1-1/2 c. chopped carrots
1/4 c. onion, finely diced
2/3 c. mayo
2 T. lemon juice
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 can tuna (or we will use 2 cans for dinner)
Cook pasta; drain well and set aside to cool (or run cold water over it to cool it down faster). Combine pasta, peas, carrots, onion and tuna in a large bowl and mix well. In a smaller bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients together (mayo, lemon juice, sugar, dill weed, salt, pepper) and mix well. Pour mayo mixture over pasta mixture and toss lightly to combine.
That is it! It is very easy, and INCREDIBLY yummy. I will probably consider doubling the recipe the next time we make it because we go through it so quickly and wish there was more.
Thanks Michelle! And don’t forget to check out her blog – she is very talented, and makes a lot of cool stuff to sell. You can see her ad on the sidebar as well to get an idea of what she can do, or just go check her site out.
