I made this  frequently in college. All of my roommates liked it, too, so we’d all eat off it, for lunch and dinner, until it ran out. This recipe is also great with imitation crabmeat.  Simply add about ¾ lb. chopped crabmeat instead of the tuna, and use mayonnaise instead of the Miracle Whip.



1 lb box of pasta (shells, spirals, or bowties)

2 cans albacore tuna, drained

2 hardboiled eggs, chopped

½ cucumber, peeled and diced

1 packet Good Seasons Italian dressing, dry

1 tsp dill

1 cup Miracle Whip, give or take



Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse with cold water, drain and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Refrigerate before serving.
