Tuna macaroni salad

I’ve been trying to switch up the lunches I bring to work. Deli meat sandwiches can only go so far. This tuna macaroni salad is a great side dish to a meal, or can be lunch itself.

I got this recipe from LittleBCooks.Blogspot.com.

Ingredients:

  • 14.5 oz uncooked macaroni
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 cans tuna (drained and chopped up)
  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

I have a go to recipe for tuna noodle casserole and this isn’t it. (That one is here, and is good for adding peas and pearl onions to.) However, I tried something new and thank goodness I did, because this is absolutely excellent and I found it at Jayesel.net.

  • 8 oz Velveeta cheese
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 (5 oz) cans tuna, drained
  • about 1 tbsp butter
  • about 1 tbsp breadcrumbs

Er, yeah. This is what the author had to say:
