INGREDIENTS

8 Ounces Regular or Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta

6 Tablespoons Mayonnaise

3 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

3 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Basil or 1 1/2 Teaspoons Dried Basil

2 Chopped Garlic Cloves

2 Sliced Cipollini Onions

1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

12 Ounces Canned Tuna (Drained & Flaked)

1 Cup Thawed Frozen Peas

2 Cups Halved Cherry Tomatoes

1/3 Cup Chopped Red Onion

In a large size pot, filled with salted water, cook the bow tie pasta, over a high heat, to al dente.  Remove from the heat and drain, but DO NOT rinse.  Rinsing pasta is a big No No.  Let the pasta cool for 5 minutes.  In a large size bowl combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, basil, garlic and pepper.  Mix well.  Add the drained tuna, cipollini onions, thawed peas, halved cherry tomatoes, chopped red onion and the drained pasta.  Mix very well and chill for 1 hour.  Transfer to a serving bowl and serve either as a main course or as a side dish.  Serves 4
