Tuna and White Bean Pasta Salad

Trying to figure out the no meat lunch issue. I mean, cold cut sandwiches are out. Also Husb is home a lot more during the day with his new schedule. Its a challenge.

This has some protein and can be made in advance. Also we can go get it whenever we are hungry, which makes life easier.

Tuna and White Bean Pasta Salad


2 small cans tuna
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed, (great northern, cannellini, navy, whatever its called)
1 stalk celery, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, deseeded, and diced
1 carrot, grated
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 bell pepper, deseeded, diced
1 cup frozen peas
1 box tri color rotini pasta, cooked according to box
2/3rds cup plain greek yogurt
1/3rd cup fresh herbs (I used parsley, basil, and a little thyme)
juice of 1/2 lemon or whole lime
1 tbsp dried dill
1 tbsp lemon pepper
salt to taste

Mix together yogurt, herbs, seasonings, and citrus juice.

Mix the tuna, veggies, and pasta. Add yogurt mix.

Chill and enjoy
