  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.

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 added creaminess and sweetness, and a bit of dill relish or chopped dills with some of the juice. You can also throw in a can of potato sticks to add some crunch. This should be served chilled.

i made this recipe for my food technology assignment at school. It tasted great and looked good too! i added kidney beans as well, which added some extra colour and increased the fibre content. Thanks for the recipe! Sarah

I wasn't too sure about the peas, so I used a can of corn (I love tuna and corn). I wasn't crazy about the lettuce, but I guess I'm not used to having it in pasta salad. This made a nice light lunch. Thanks!

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!

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

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