Spring is in the air... And on my table!

It was warm and beautiful yesterday, and also at times today. So lovely in fact, that the only logical option for dinner was pasta salad.

RECIPE: Tuna Pasta Salad

500 g package of small pasta noodles
500 g frozen peas
1 bell pepper, diced
other veggies, diced (tomato, cucumber, celery, onions, cilantro, green beans, corn, etc.)
spinach, lettuce, or greens of some kind

2 cans tuna, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise or sour cream
1/2 cup sweet chilli sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tsp ground)
1/2 tsp ground pepper


> cook the pasta according to package instructions; drain then rinse with cold water until the pasta has fully cooled (to stop the cooking process)

> mix together the tuna, mayo or sour cream, sweet chilli, garlic, and pepper

> add the pasta and veggies into the tuna and serve over a bed of greens or chopped tomatoes
