I usually use pasta bows or tubes, from a packet, cooked for about ten minutes.
Then drain and add:
- 1 tomato diced
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 length of spring onion chopped into rings
- 1 tablespoon (a fat drizzle) nice oil
- a small handfull fresh herbs chopped roughly (use whatever you have, such as basil, mint, sage, parsley etc)
- grated tasty cheese
- salt and pepper
- if you need some extra protein, a can of tuna goes well, or smoked salmon, capers and a touch of fennel.
Stir these all through and you will have a beautiful colorful warm pasta salad that is filling and healthy and makes real cooking look like a waste of time!
