Cold Macaroni & Tuna Salad

Ingredients

3 eggs
3 cups macaroni
1/2 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas
2 (6 ounce) cans tuna, drained
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Method

1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Over medium heat, bring water to a full boil. Lower heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Immediately plunge eggs into cold water.

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse under cold water.

3. Put frozen peas into a colander and rinse with hot water; drain well. In a large bowl place the macaroni and peas. Peel eggs and dice them into the bowl. Put the tuna in the bowl, flaking it apart.

4. Stir mayonnaise into the mixture a little at a time, so the mixture is moist but not soggy. Sprinkle the salt and pepper and mix one last time. Cover and refrigerate for a least one hour or overnight.
