You Don’t Need To Go To The Ocean To Enjoy This Tuna Seashell Pasta Salad

It was just as much fun that everyone said it was going to be. My boss is way more relaxed person when he isn’t talking business. I can understand now why so many people like him. My salad was a big hit too which was nice. His wife even went on a hunt trying to figure out who brought it. It was quite flattering having her come up to me to compliment the dish and ask for the recipe. That’s an event I’m definitely going to again.
