Basic Tuna Pasta Salad

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.” –Dale Carnegie

12 ounces pasta shells or 12 ounces macaroni, cooked and drained
12 ounces canned chunk albacore tuna, drained
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup frozen green pea, thawed
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (this amount is an estimate, you’ll need enough to make the salad creamy) or 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (this amount is an estimate, you’ll need enough to make the salad creamy)
salt and pepper
Directions:

1  Combine the cooked and drained pasta with the drained tuna, chopped celery, peas, and mayonnaise, using only enough mayonnaise for the salad to be creamy.
2  (If it’s made ahead, you may need more because the pasta will absorb the mayo.) Chill at least 1- 2 hours before serving.
