This is normally a dish I make in the hot summer months when cold salads are refreshing. Simple to make and low cost it also has added benefit of introducing vegetables to a meal.

Cold Tuna-Pasta Salad

1 16oz package medium shell pasta.

2 cans tuna fish (drained)

1 can garden peas (drained)

1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced

1/2 cup radishes, diced

1 cup celery, diced

1/2 – 3/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp parsley

salt and pepper to taste
