Cold tuna pasta

With the sun out (no, don't say horray!!), I thought a cold tuna pasta would go nicely. Unfortunately I did not have all the ingredients I would have ideally liked to add (and I ran out of mayonnaise lol), so I have wrote down what I added, and what I would have liked to add.

  • Skill level:
  • Serves: 7-9 people
  • Prep and cooking time: 45 mins (as time to cook pasta and then for it to cool)
What you will need:

700g-1kg shell- shaped pasta (known as conchiglie, or pick any shape you like)
1/2 tsp salt
splash of olive oil
3 cans of tuna
2 cans sweetcorn
10 tbsp mayonnaise (more or less)
Juice of 1 lemon
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
1/2-1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
pinch of oregano
2 handfuls of grated cheddar cheese

What I would have liked to add:

cucumber, finely chopped
carrots, finely grated
and more mayo!

How to make:

1) In a large pot, add the pasta, salt and the splash of olive oil, and add enough boiling water to cover the pasta. Leave to cook for 10-15 mins. Remove from heat, drain and leave to cool down

2) Add to the pasta the rest of the ingredients, tasting and adjusting the quantites as you like, then serve

It really is so simple I thought maybe I shouldn't upload it...but there we go. It has been uploaded now :D Enjoy!
