Tuna Shells

Serving: 8-10
1. 4 cans of tuna (solid white-Albacore tuna in water)
2. Pasta-jumbo shells
3. 7 tablespoons of light mayo
4. 2 teaspoons of sweetener (Sweet 10-sugar substitute)
5. 3 teaspoons of lemon juice
6. Olive oil
7. Onion powder

1. Drain tuna cans and mix so that there are no chunks of tuna stuck together.
2. Add in the mayo, mix. Repeat with sweetener, and lemon juice.
3. Mix well.

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Boil water.  Pour the box of pasta in. Drain.
3. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and mix lightly making sure that the pasta shells don't break.
4. Take a 13 x 9 x 2" baking dish, and lightly coat the bottom with olive oil
5. Take a scoop of tuna and put it into each shell. Repeat this process until all shells are filled.
6. Sprinkle some onion powder over all of the shells.
7.  Place baking dish in the oven for 30 minutes.


  1. Wow! this look amazingly delicious!!

  2. OK I'm probably being dense and taking step 2 too literally. I interpret step 2 as boiling water, then pouring the shells in, and then right away draining them. Are you supposed to cook the pasta shell in step 2 according to the box directions before draining them?

  3. Yes, sorry if that sounded to be more of an instruction than it was. The pasta should be cooked according to the directions on the pasta box.
