Tuna pasta salad with a hint of curry |

Tuna pasta salad

This tuna pasta salad has a little curry powder in it to give it a beautiful yellow colour and a taste quite unlike anything I expected. It was very morish, fresh, crisp and a definite winner for the last of the summer days.

What you need

250g dry macaroni
300g green beans, cut in half
1 tin tuna in oil (415g) drained and flaked.
1 small onion sliced
Handful of chopped fresh parsley
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
1 heaped teaspoon crushed garlic
2 teaspoons mild curry powder

The process

Cook you pasta in plenty of salted water, drain under cold water and set aside.

Boil the beans for about 2 minutes until tender but still firm.

Now add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and toss well until the yellow of the curry powder coats everything.

That is that… no fuss and very tasty. You may like the tuna pasta bake if this one appeals to you.

Bad breath getting you down? There is a solution! >>

      Hi Barbara, I’m so glad you enjoyed this and the pineapple is a great idea. I have used pineapple in a chicken pasta salad before but not the tuna. Have a wonderful day G

    I made this recipe last nice. The amount of ingredients creates enough pasta for 5 – 6 people. I do not feel the recipe is complete. The pasta would taste better by adding: canned peaches / peppadew sauce / mayo. It is also a bit dry as it is using the above ingredients, so by adding any 1 of the ingredients I mention would make it a bit better.
