Made this without the cucumber (just didn't sound good) and about 1/2-3/4 the dressing called for (personal preference on most salads) and it was very good. Of course I love dill so it was to be expected! I also added a little extra pasta to use up the rest of a box. My daughter asked for the leftovers to pack in her school lunch box today so I'm sure we'll be making this again and again.
Very light and refreshing on a hot summer day. The ranch dressing and dill is a nice flavor combination. This is a nice change from the mayo-based receipes. The small shells are the perfect size for this. The only change I made was to use 2 tsp. dried dill because I didn't have fresh dill on hand. The quantities of the ingredients are right on except for the tuna. I used 1 - 5oz. can of Tuna (nowadays Tuna cans are only 5 oz. not 6) but it wasn't enough. Even a 6 oz can isn't enough for all the veggies and pasta. Next time I will use 2 cans of Tuna and fresh dill.
Fabulous recipe and I'm so glad I decided to double it. I left out the red pepper used dried dill instead of fresh threw in about 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar and added salt and pepper. I made it for lunch and may just have more for dinner. Thanks!
Just what I was in the mood for. A caterer I know made this for one event I helped her with and I am not a tuna eater usually but I liked it a lot. This recipe comes pretty close to hers. I didn't even have the celery red pepper or cucumber on hand but made it anyway and thanks to the fresh garden cherry tomatoes and fresh dill I didn't think those other ingredients were missed.
When I first put this dish together I wasn't that impressed. Then I put it into the fridge and it was 1000x better! Seriously eat this cold. Also add salt 2 cans of tuna 1 tablespoon of dill (if dried) and eliminate the cucumber if desired. I also used about 1 and a half cups of pasta twists. I thought this was a good amount of pasta.
ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS YUUUUUM!! MY THREE YEAR OLD SON AND I ATE THE ENTIRE DISH IN ONE SITTING. I SEARCHED FOR A DISH WITH TUNA FISH THAT MY SON WILL ACTUALLY EAT AND I FOUND A WINNER. THE ONLY ADJUSTMENT I HAD TO MAKE WAS TO ADD SALT BUT THAT'S MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE. YOU GOTTA TRY THIS!!
