Pesto Pasta Salad

Our favourite summer dinner. This is a great throw together, light yet filling salad, perfect on a hot evening when you can't really be bothered cooking. Perfect for those summer catch ups, our go to 'bring a plate' for the BBQ.


1 pkt of your fav 'Real Pasta'

1 pkt (200g ish) Cherry tomatoes, quartered

A few spoonfuls of basil pesto

Sprinkling of parmesan

1/4C Chopped, roasted almonds


- Cook pasta in boiling water, 3 mins

- Drain well, give a little rinse, transfer into serving dish

- Fold as many or as few spoonfuls of pesto through as you like

- Fold cherry tomatoes through,

- Finish with a generous grating of parmesan and sprinkle with almonds

As easy as that!!

Almost too easy to qualify as a recipe but it counts as inspiration hey.

Note: We like to add any other bits and pieces we have lying around in the fridge - a bit of chopped capsicum, cucumber, chorizo, peas or beans. You can swap out the parmesan for feta, chop up some fresh mint and basil. All yum!!
