Begin by boiling the Elbow Macaroni Noodles for about 7 minutes, or until the noodles are tender. Once tender, drain the noodles in a colander. Rinse the noodles in cold water.
Drain and rinse the cans or packets of tuna until the tuna is dry.
Cut both the celery and the onions in to fine pieces.
Chop either Colby or Cheddar, or even a combination of both, cheeses into small cubes. Measure into two cups.
If peas are frozen, warm them in water until completely thawed.
Pour each ingredient into a large mixing bowl, stirring while adding each ingredient. Once all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, add your choice of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. About 1 to 1 1/2 cups of Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip should do. Mix in until all ingredients are covered. I recommend cooling the salad in a fridge for about an hour.
Cooling it in the fridge or freezer for an hour or so makes it a wonderful dish for a hot summer evening meal! Something I grew up with from my Grandmother. Enjoy!
