Hey there, sweetie!
One of my favorite things about being a food blogger is getting the opportunity to work with brands to create new and delicious recipes, especially when those brands create products as delicious as Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna! Seeing is believing and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is quality you can see – the moment you open the can.
And quality you can taste, if you ask me. 🙂
These tuna salad stuffed shells make a delicious (and veggie packed) after-school snack and because they can be eaten without utensils they are perfect to pack up for a picnic!
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
12 ounce can of Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore
2 carrots, grated
2 celery stalks, diced
1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
12-15 shell noodles, cooked
2 whole green onions, sliced
1 head bib lettuce
5.3 ounce container plain greek yogurt
2 cloves garlic
1.5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 cup parsley
salt and pepper
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Cook and drain the shell noodles. Make sure you salt the water when you cook them as we won’t be “seasoning” the shells themselves, only the tuna salad inside them.
While the noodles are cooking, combine the grated carrots, diced celery, cut grape tomatoes, sliced green onions in a bowl.
Add the drained can of Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore along with a pinch of salt and pepper and stir until combined.
Look at that yummy looking tuna! With a firm texture, light color and fresh taste – Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore is the perfect ingredient to deliciously enhance almost any recipe, adding a variety of nutrients – including lean protein, healthy fat and important vitamins and minerals. *see their website for full nutritional facts
Next, we are going to make the dressing for our salad. In a blender, add the yogurt, garlic, red wine vinegar, parsley, a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of pepper and pulse until smooth.
If you need a little more liquid add extra virgin olive oil as needed, but you shouldn’t need much!
Add all but about a half a cup of the sauce to the salad and stir until everything is coated.
Spoon the dressed tuna salad into the cooked (and cooled) shells.
Serve the stuffed shells on a bib lettuce leaf and drizzle with the reserved dressing.
