5 radishes, sliced thin
6 1/2 oz can drained tuna, water pack

This pasta salad gets its name from the shape of the pasta, but you could just as easily use shells and rename it Seashell Salad, etc.
Toss all the ingredients in a large salad bowl and chill. The salad can be made the night before and refrigerated. If you want to take it easy, just slice all the veggies with a food processor.
