  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a boil. Stir in seashell pasta, and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  2. Place green onions and lettuce in a large bowl. Add pasta, tuna, peas, and grated Cheddar cheese; mix well. Stir in dressing; toss to coat.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute your favorite creamy salad dressing for the creamy Italian dressing if you wish.

This recipe works for a crowd. Use defrosted frozen peas (very tasty) and add some chopped celery if you have it. Make a dressing of milk, light mayo, a bit of cole slaw dressing if you like for...

This is the best tuna pasta salad I've ever had. I made it for my family and they absolutely love it! It's a perfect salad for a hot day!

I used spinach, broccoli, onion, and mushroom with rotini pasta and italian dressing. Also my hubby likes his meat, so I used 2 cans of tuna and served cold. Yum!

This is a little twist on a recipe that I make often in the summer months. I loved it...just delicious!

I like to put it on top of more chopped lettuce, spinach salad.

Great basic recipe my entire family enjoys. (Note: I don't add cheese and I use frozen peas instead of what recipe calls for.)

Oh sooo easy and oh sooo delightful!!
