I liked the addition of the pasta to this tuna salad, but the ratio of tuna to pasta was off for us. Fortunately, I didn’t add all of the cooked pasta at one time, added about 3/4 of it, which probably equates to about 5-6 oz (rather than the 8 oz that I cooked). Adding all of the pasta certainly would be a way to stretch the budget, that’s for sure, but you will lose some of the tuna flavor. We don't eat bacon bits, so I cooked crisp a couple slices of bacon which worked out well. This recipe makes a lot, and in this house, this is definitely five main course servings, rather than a side dish. I added a bit of chopped red bell pepper which gave it a pop of color and a little crunch, and after I took the photo, added some green peas (great addition!). Hubby is much more of a tuna lover than I, and he REALLY liked it, and I LIKED it. Thanks for sharing.
