Let’s talk easy dinners, shall we?

Since my little fire cracker of a son emerged from my womb exactly 1 week ago today, I haven’t really been doing the whole cooking thing. Also, my kitchen is still a work in progress…a different story for another time. But when I do, I usually go into the 15 minute, one pot dinner portion of my brain to see what I can find. Some days I come up with really bad combos which you never see.

But then other times, I come up with something like this Tuna Pasta Salad and just DIE. Because it’s soooooooo good.

Yes, pasta and tuna together are amazeballs with dill pickles, peas and few other yummy things. Is it strange that I crave savory things like cold dill pickles and tuna? I know I’m not pregnant anymore, but I am starving and thirsty all the live long day, so I just shovel in the food. #thejoysofbreastfeeding

Anyways, this is perfect for snacking, perfect for lunch, perfect for a picnic and perfect for summer. It’s tangy, crunchy, oniony and delightful! I thoroughly enjoyed eating this entire bowl.

Tuna Pasta Salad with Dill & Peas

A little tangy, crunchy and delicious at room temperature or cold. Great for late spring or early summer!

Yield: 4 servings Prep Time: 10 Cook Time: 15 Total Time: 25

Ingredients:

1 lb. mini bowtie pasta
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup diced red or white onion
3/4 cup diced dill pickle
2-5 oz. cans tuna, drained {I used albacore tuna packed in water}
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup real mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dried dill
salt & pepper, to taste

Directions:

Bring large pot of water to boil. Salt water and cook pasta until al dente. Stir in frozen peas and cook 30 seconds. Drain pasta and peas. If you want room temperature pasta salad, don't rinse. If you want cold pasta salad, rinse with cold water.

In a large bowl, stir cooked pasta and peas together with remaining ingredients until everything is evenly coated in sauce {made from mayonnaise and lemon juice}. Serve or refrigerate covered until ready to serve.

  2. My favorite is the sweet stripe zip in coral/gray. I live in the Portland area too and can always use a jacket. This one is really stylish and could be used for workout or casual dress…

  18. Hi Lauren, I have been following your blog for quite a while now and when I need a simple, delicious and quick recipe, I come to your blog. This recipe is one of my staples; I love this for a light lunch. My husband doesn’t like tuna though and I had some fresh peas from my garden the other day so I made this with fresh peas and shredded chicken, so good. My husband gave it his stamp of approval. Thank you for the wonderful recipes you come up with and you are always hilarious, I always look forward to seeing new posts from you.
