Tuna Pasta Salad from

Babies make it really hard to do two things - sleep and eat which ironically are the two things they enjoy doing the most. I picked this recipe because it's easy to make and it tastes good cold. (Because my son doesn't care if I'm starving :) If you opted for eating it cold - try adding sugar snap peas and sliced cumbers.  The recipe calls for Penne pasta but I had an open box of Rotini that I wanted to use before opening a new bag of pasta.

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (use light mayonnaise if you are trying to cut calories)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 lb Penne pasta (cook as directed and drain)
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 (6 ounce) can of albacore tuna, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Mix may and lemon juice in large bowl.
  2. Add all remaining (prepped) ingredients. Mix well.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste.
