I tried to find healthier options for my family, as the children get older it is important to take care of the fat and starch a day.
This recipe has a history, my grandmother made ​​us pasta with tuna salad because nobody in my house could eat as hot plate and for many years this has been our preference.
I started making this salad for my family and they loved it.
Now I'm traing of changing it and look for better options, more healthy for everyone to enjoy at dinner.
I make enough and keep in the refrigerator, my daughter is so fond of repeating and requests take to school for lunch.
It's an incredible feeling when you're feeding the family better and see that your children appreciate the effort, I do not sacrifice taste, I am convinced that no matter how healthy it must have a unique flavor and we all know that children sometimes are difficult to please.
I hope you enjoy it.
