You can use almost any pasta shapes in this dish, shell-shaped ones (conchiglie) are good as the tuna and vegetable chunks can nestle inside!

Method

  1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions, adding the green beans to the pan for the last 3 minutes of cooking time.
  2. Place the tuna, lettuce, yellow pepper, tomatoes, olives and red onion in a wide bowl.
  3. Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together and season well.
  4. Drain the pasta and the beans and add to the tuna mixture. Pour over the dressing and toss gently to mix well.
    Garnish each serving with a boiled egg, if using, and serve immediately.
