Mmmm..Potluck Tuna Pasta Salad

Make this pasta for a potluck or on Sundays to have lunch to take to work throughout the week. It's quick, easy, and tastes great! My kids love it!

Tuna Pasta Salad

1 lb. small shaped pasta (shells, radiatore, bowtie, etc.)
11 oz. pouch chunk light tuna in water
1 1/2 - 2 cups mayonnaise
3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 cup cubed cheddar or colby-jack cheese
5 green onions, sliced
salt and pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to package directions; rinse, drain, and cool. Add tuna, mayonnaise, peas, cheese, green onions, and salt & pepper. Put in refrigerator til ready to serve. 

*If you make this the day before you may need to add a little more mayonnaise before serving because the pasta tends to soak up the mayo and the salad becomes a little dry.
