This is a delicious pasta salad that is a meal on its own. If you bring this to a picnic, you need little else but a bottle of wine and something sweet for dessert!
Easy to make and very tasty. Good for work lunches. - 12 Feb 2017
Hubby has a bad cold, and this has always been his comfort food of choice. Stuck with no car today, I had to rely solely on ingredients in my pantry. Because this is such a basic recipe, this fit my needs perfectly. I omitted the onion and cheese and substituted frozen green peas for the lima beans, keeping all else the same. My roasted red peppers were particularly mushy, so they didn't stay in chunky pieces--but actually, it made the salad take on an attractive color and speckled appearance that made it very pretty! Good and satisfying tuna pasta salad, with much room for flexibility with the ingredients. Hubby was a happy camper! - 04 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have made this recipe twice since April - my family loves it! It calls for the perfect amount of everything, including the mayo. It is a perfect balance of crunchy and substance (pasta / beans). I will make this often in summer months. Thanks Laurie and Roger! - 03 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
