Tuna Pasta Salad

Tuna Pasta Salad

2 - small cans of Tuna drained   $1.50
1/2 bag of pasta (I use Wacky Mac Twists)  $0.25
1 large tomato chopped $1.35
1 medium onion chopped $0.60
1 to 1-1/2 cups Mayo (enough to moisten pasta) $0.50
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 TBS dill weed
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and prepare noodles as directed on the package.  Drain and set aside
  2. In a large bowl mix mayo, salt, pepper, and dill weed.  Add tuna, onion, and tomato and mix well.  Add noodles and coat well. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours to blend flavors and chill.
This is a great quick to prepare meal and you can add whatever your family likes or omit anything they don't.  Cucumbers, celery, cheese, broccoli, etc are all great additions to this dish.  This is a scaled down version (approximately 6 servings) and the recipe can easily be doubled to make larger batches.  ENJOY!

Total Cost:  $4.20 or approximately 70 cents per serving.
