This was a recipe that I (sorta) stole from my sister.
Her recipe uses white pasta and (I kid you not) about a half a jar of mayo.
It’s delicious BUT I really wanted to clean it up a bit using ingredients that work better for me and my body-body!
So, as you’ll see, I subbed in some whole grain pasta, added some peas, and used (mostly) Greek yogurt for the mayo.
This meal is like a tuna sammie in a bowl and just so happens to be a hit with the toddlers too. Enjoy!!
