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