Easy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe with Peas, Veggies, and Cheese #BumbleBeeB2S #ClverGirls
Now that the back to school season is in full swing, that means less time for mom in the kitchen. If you are anything like us, sports practices, dance, gymnastics, and after school activities are likely going to be loading up your schedules more than you’d like to admit. Dinner will have to require a little less prep time, but still have that homemade feel.
Trust me, I can relate and that is why I want to share this really delicious and easy tuna pasta salad recipe with peas, veggies, and cheese with you! It does sound rather absurd, but I assure you when these items come together magical things happen and the dish is simply delicious! I was able to use garden fresh tomato, cucumbers, and onions in addition to some Bumble Bee® Premium Albacore Tuna in Water Pouch, sweet peas, cheddar cheese, mayo, pasta, and some spices.
For this back to school meal made easy, you could use any Bumble Bee® Premium Albacore Tuna in Water Pouch, Bumble Bee® Premium Light Tuna in Water Pouch, or even Bumble Bee® canned tuna varieties. You could additionally make this meal ahead of time, or prep the veggies earlier in the week to save time. The longest part of making this dish is waiting for the macaroni noodles to boil.
So, if you want a kid friendly back to school meal, here is what you would need to make Easy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe with Peas, Veggies, and Cheese:
- 1 pouch of Bumble Bee® Premium Albacore Tuna in Water Pouch
- 3/4 cheddar cheese
- 1 box of macaroni pasta
- small onion diced
- 1 medium cucumber diced
- 1 lb cherry tomato sliced in halves
- 1 cup of green peas
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper to taste
Dice cucumber, and half your tomatoes
Boil macaroni pasta until al dente. When it is done, run the pasta through cold water; drain
Add pasta, peas, cucumbers, and tomatoes to bowl
Add mayo, salt, pepper, and lemon juice
Add Bumble Bee® Premium Albacore Tuna in Water Pouch
Mix all together until creamy, cover, and then place it in the fridge to chill
Serve with a side of bread, or alone. This also is perfect for lunch box meals because it requires no microwave.
Your family is sure to love this creative pasta salad, and boy will it save you time! We even found that we had leftovers for the next day too! If you love tuna, I also suggest you check out Bumble Bee®”s Custom Recipe Center for additional meal time inspiration.
