Tuna Pasta Salad with Olives

Tuna Pasta Salad with Olives: Savory Sweet an Satisfying

My oldest daughter has taken to helping me cook. She is always asking if she can help make meals. When my youngest was younger she always wanted to help, but now my oldest is enjoying helping, especially when she can use a knife and cut things. She loved slicing the olives and tomatoes for this recipe which came together even quicker with her help.
