How to make it

  • Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine macaroni and tuna (undrained - the olive oil is key to the recipe). Gently break up tuna while mixing.
  • Add tomato, basil and lemon juice. Combine well.
  • Mix in Parmesan cheese.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Combine well.
  • Chill to allow flavors to blend at least one hour or overnight.

    I made this tonight and it was delicious; thank you. I had some leftovers to use up so also added a boiled egg, grated carrot and some red chilli pepper.

    I cannot wait to try this, this sounds perfect for lunch! Two of my favorite munchies, Tuna AND Pasta! Just perfect :) I'm in NC and honestly I've never seen Tuna in olive oil here, only vegetable oil or canola oil...will the oil really make all the difference?
