Mom's Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

I'm going down memory lane this week. A few days ago, I posted the Stovetop Mac and Cheese my Mom used to make and today's post is her Tuna Salad! This is again, one of my favorites and I just cannot believe I haven't blogged it yet! This is super simple and most of these ingredients are found in my pantry at all times, so it's easy to make when you have nothing else in mind! If you do make it ahead of time, you may have to add more Miracle Whip when you are ready to serve as the noodles absorb some of the dressing. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

What you need:
8 oz small pasta (I used rings)
1/2 c. onion, diced
1- 15 oz can sweet peas, rinsed and drained
1- 5 oz can of tuna, drained
2 c. Miracle Whip
salt and pepper
