Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

1 can (5 ounces) reduced-sodium tuna in water, drained and flaked
6 ounces whole wheat elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
2 cups frozen green peas, thawed
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup fat-free yogurt
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

In a large bowl, lightly toss the tuna, macaroni, peas, onion, celery, and red pepper until mixed. In a smaller bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, and black pepper until well blended.
