    Serves: 6 

    • 750g penne
    • 1/3 cup (85ml) light mayonnaise
    • 125ml Italian-style salad dressing
    • 1/4 teaspoon Italian herbs, or to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 185g prepackaged coleslaw mix
    • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced

    • 100g tinned tuna, drained
    • 1/2 cup (60g) grated Cheddar cheese
    • 2 spring onions, chopped

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:11min  ›  Ready in:41min 

    1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the penne and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
    2. Combine the mayonnaise, salad dressing, Italian herbs, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper in a blender; blend until completely mixed.
    3. Place the coleslaw mix, tomatoes, cucumber, tuna, Cheddar cheese, spring onions and the cooked pasta in a large bowl; pour mayonnaise mixture into the bowl; toss to coat. Serve cold.

    Good summer pasta dish. My son really enjoyed it. My husband and I think it needs something, but can't quite figure out what that is. I took it to a ladies dinner at church and it was well received. Thanks for sharing your recipe.  -  07 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The pasta was very good. I used whole wheat pasta but that was the only difference. Godd pasta but is missing the WOW factor.Would make again though.  -  20 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
