INGREDIENTS

  • One 14 oz. bag of Lacrosse Pasta (may substitute 14-16 oz. bag of short shapes)

Add pasta to same pot and cook pasta in slightly boiling water for approx. 6 minutes until tender but firm. Add pasta to the same colander and rinse with cold water. Drain well.
  2. Place tuna in a large bowl and break up into pieces. Add the black olives, green onions, tomato, and pasta with green beans.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the mayo with the balsamic vinegar and celery salt.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Combine dressing with the pasta….and serve!
