Instructions

  • 1

    Cook 2 cups of pasta of your own choice (egg noodles, macaronis) in salted boiling water for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender.

  • 2

    Drain the water from the pasta and transfer it to a bowl containing chilled water.

  • 3

    Once your cooked pasta has cooled, drain it into a dish.

  • 4

    Pour two tablespoons of olive oil on the drained pasta and mix it well. This will keep the pasta from sticking together.

  • 5

    Open two cans of tuna and drain the water or oil in it.

  • 6

    Put the tuna into a medium size mixing bowl. If your tuna was packed in olive oil, don’t add any seasoning to it. Simply dice it into smaller pieces using a fork.

  • 7

    Mix ¼ cup of minced red onions, 1 cup frozen peas and 1 cup frozen corns to the shredded tuna.

  • 8

    Also add parsley and dill for seasoning, but it is totally optional and you can skip both these ingredients.

  • 9

    Combine cooked pasta and cheese with the tuna mixture and mix well.

  • 10

    Transfer all the ingredients to a casserole dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the oven, preheated at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
