GillBilly Poor Man's New Year Tuna Finger Food

Shell macaroni are stuffed with a creamy tuna mixture in this easy to prepare, fun to eat appetizer. Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves with toothpicks, and make sure plenty of cocktail sauce is available! Be prepared with additional tuna ready to fill the serving dish as your guests make this great appetizer disappear quickly. GillBilly keeps extras in the fridge. Enjoy!

* 1 (8 ounce) package small seashell pasta
* 2 (6 ounce) cans or preferably fresh tuna, drained and flaked
* 1 stalk celery, diced
* 2 tablespoons diced green bell pepper
* 1 tablespoon diced onion
* 2/3 cup creamy salad dressing, e.g. Miracle Whip ™

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add shell macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and rinse with cool water.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the tuna, celery, green bell pepper, onion and creamy salad dressing.
3. Stuff the shell macaroni with the tuna mixture.

There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind.
