Tuna Pasta Salad


1 pkg. rotini noodles, cooked & drained

1 12 oz. can tuna, drained

1 small onion

1/3 red pepper

1 cup broccoli florets, lightly steamed

2 tbsp chopped manzanilla olive & capers
(or black olives)

1 tsp garlic powder

Salt & pepper to taste

1/2 cup Italian vinaigrette

1 tbsp mayonnaise


Combine tuna w/ drained pasta.  Light saute onion and pepper–less than 1 min.  Add to pasta.  Add steamed broccoli and olives, and toss together.  Season w/ salt, pepper, & garlic powder–stir to distribute.  Dress pasta with vinaigrette and mayo (more or less can be used–enough to make pasta very mildly creamy–lightly coated)  Chill before serving.
