Pin It

I love this Tuna Peas Pasta Salad Recipe to create a light lunch throughout the hot Summer. The sweet peas go so well with the tuna and mild pasta. You can use low-fat mayo for less calories and it will still be delish.

Of course you can also use fresh sweet peas in this recipe when they are available.
