This is an Italian recipe, very nice for the summer months! It has cucumber in it, which I don't like, but my husband does, so I just add cucumber to his individual portion.

  • Combine tuna, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and capers in the bowl of a food processor; blend until smooth and creamy. Add to the penne and mix until well combined. Add corn, bell pepper, and cucumber and toss together. Spoon into a serving dish. Arrange quartered eggs on top.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any short pasta for this recipe; fusilli or shells work great.

If you don't have capers, you can replace them with 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar.
