Nothing brings everyone around the table like a delicious meal to share together. With today's hectic pace, often times it's the only chance family members and friends really have a chance to sit down and talk, and there are few things which jumpstart the conversation and bring a smile to the face of those you are dining with more than a quick, easy dish bursting with flavour. Pasta is perhaps one of the most versatile foods, and coincidentally so is seafood – mixing the two together makes for a winning combination all the way around.
 
Simple tuna and pasta salad can be easily prepared using ingredients most of us already have around the kitchen, and the result is a scrumptious and nutrient-packed meal that leaves little mess to clean up after dinner.
 
Seafood, especially tuna, is an important part of any diet as it helps promote brain function and ocular health. As reported by www.livestrong.com a 100g serving of canned tuna can have 20g or more of protein and under 1g of fat, making it an all-around winner at the dinner table. Try incorporating it into unexpected dishes, such as spaghetti sauce or lasagna and experience a flavour that is out of this world!
