Step 1

Follow the directions for the pasta and cook them.

Step 2

Finely dice the vegetables while pasta cooks.

Step 3

Once the pasta is finished cooking, rinse under cold water until cool. Mix in veggies.

Step 4

Add the desired amount of Miracle Whip and small amount of mustard, top with salt, pepper, chives, and parsley. Mix well. Add tuna if you'd like.

Step 5

Serve while it's fresh!


When storing pasta, it will be dryer later on even when sealed due to the noodles being absorbent. Simply add more Miracle Whip later on to bring it back to life.
