*** This was excellent and I ate it for 4 days as no one in my house likes tuna. My modifications were as follows, I decreased the amount of pasta to 4 oz., used 1/2 c yogurt and about a TB or so of mayo for flavor. I added way more peas and onion, some garlic powder and some lemon pepper. One day I heated up a serving with some sprinkled parmesan cheese - YUM!
