Tuna pasta salad – Mine

Since I’m recording recipes I might as well record mine (even if they are very simple). This tuna pasta salad is a popular week day dinner and packed lunch option for the summer. It takes about 15mins to make and the quantities below feed 4-5 people.


  • 225g dried pasta (shells work best but fanfalle is also good)
  • 2 tins tuna (preferably in water or brine)
  • 1 small tin sweetcorn
  • 3-4 tbsp capers
  • 5-6 chopped spring onions
  • 6-8 tbsp mayonnaise


  1. Cook pasta according to instructions on packet but it is probably bring pan of water to the boil, put in pasta and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Whilst pasta is cooking chop spring onions and place in large bowl together with drained tuna, drained sweetcorn and capers.
  3. Drain pasta and rinse well with cold water, drain well
  4. Put pasta in bowl and add mayonnaise.
  5. Stir well
  6. If possible chill before serving
