Tuna, Cheese and Pasta Salad

15 mins (prep 15)

Three-color pasta, cubed cheese, tuna, and roasted sweet peppers blend into a spunky salad that we enjoy over 2 suppers during hot summer days. This is an excellent salad that I've served with or without cashews since sometimes I forget those. Fresh basil is essential to this recipe and we just have some fancy fresh breads and butter with it. I don't recall which of my magazines I got this from but it's favorite of mine.
