Seafood Pasta Salad!



This "Seafood Pasta Salad" is another of my Aunt Tootsie's recipes.  It's a really easy pasta salad that you can adapt to suit your own tastes or for what you have on hand.  It's also a good recipe for those observing Lent, which I get a lot of requests for.  Here is what you will need for this:

2 cups shell macaroni, uncooked
1 (12oz.) can of good tuna, drained (could substitute canned flaked salmon)
1 cup baby salad shrimp, cooked
1 cup Lesuer baby peas, drained
1 cup grated carrots
1 Tbs. lemon juice
3/4 cup mayonnaise
fresh ground black pepper
Lettuce leaves

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain well and place in a bowl.   

Add the tuna or salmon and shrimp if you are using those.  Add the peas, carrots, lemon juice, and mayonnaise.   Add a grind of fresh ground pepper if you like a little spice.   Mix well. 


Serve on lettuce leaves on individual salad plates.
