Sweet & Spicy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

I enjoy eating tuna and I am a huge fan of pasta salads. So, it only seems natural that these two ingredients come together into a delicious summertime recipe. One of the things I like about this particular recipe is that it's easy-to-prepare and doesn't use ingredients that I've never heard of. Sweet & Spice, this pasta salad is everything nice!

Today's guest recipe is courtesy of Hungry Girl. You can visit their site to learn more about them and to print off additional recipes.

Hungry Girl's Sweet & Spicy Tuna Pasta Salad Recipe

2 (2.6 oz.) Pouches - Tuna Creations® Sweet & Spicy, flaked
4 oz. (about 1- 1⁄4 cups) uncooked high-fiber penne pasta
One 12 oz. bag (about 4 cups) broccoli coleslaw
2 cups chopped red and yellow bell peppers
1⁄2 cup chopped red onion
1 cup chopped jicama
1⁄4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1⁄8 tsp. red pepper flakes

Prepare pasta in a medium pot per package instructions, about 10 minutes. Drain, rinse with cold water and transfer to a large bowl. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine broccoli slaw with 1⁄4 cup water. Cover and microwave for 4-5 minutes, until softened. Alternatively, steam your slaw by microwaving it right in the bag, if the package says it can be done. Drain excess liquid. Add bell peppers, onion, jicama and flaked tuna. In a medium bowl, whisk vinegar, oil and red pepper flakes. Add to the large bowl, and mix well. Enjoy immediately or cover and chill!

Since I have never tried the Sweet & Spicy Tuna Creations I am not sure how much I would like it. All the other ingredients in this recipe sound fine to me. I also think I would like to have more tuna in the recipe.
