    Loved this! I used green onion and whole wheat pasta. Save 1/4 cup of the combined dressing to stir into salad when ready to serve for a nice, creamy texture. In addition to the lemon included in recipe, squeeze a bit on top when on your plate and grind fresh ground pepper. So good!! - 8/21/13

    what is barilla - 7/2/08

    Reply from LRUSSELLFAMILY (7/2/08)
    barilla plus is a brand of pasta that is made with legumes and flax seed and other good ingredients. It tastes just as good as regular white pasta but is better for you. Wal-mart carries it right next to their other pasta.

  • I used Dreamfields pasta, 8 ounces of fresh tuna seared and left rare and then sliced in small chunks and plain greek yogurt instead of the mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard. It was delicious! - 1/10/14

  • Amazing! (And I HATE tuna) With 2 picky eaters in the house, I risked it and whipped this up for lunch. I am sure there are a number of fresh veggies that would be awesome thrown in. We have saved this and plan on making it again. - 1/29/12

  • It was tasty! I made it with gluten free pasta--which I should have cooked longer. They seem to harden when chilled. - 6/29/11

  • Really good! I tripled the recipe for a church potluck and it was a hit! Love it too b/c you can add fresh veggies and modify it easily with things you have on hand. Will be making again for sure. Thanks! - 3/27/11

  • Yummy! I'm not big on tuna, but I really enjoyed this. Next time I might double the tuna so it's more like a main dish. - 1/4/11

  • A nice way to serve tuna. I used one can of tuna and half of the rest of the ingredients since we didn't need as much as the original recipes makes. - 6/4/10

  • I tried this one yesterday, and I have to say I really like it! I added some sun dried tomatoes and sellerie which make it colorful, and forgot to put in the carrot. Furthermore, I used Barilla plus Rottini instead of the elbows. I really like the Barilla pasta's! But I like this recipe too! - 9/4/08
