Pesto Pasta Salad

With the arrival of the sunshiny weather we have been eating outside a bit more. And that means easy meals and lots more salady stuff!

We tried this new Pesto Pasta Salad the other day and it was delicious. It reminds me of the Marks & Spencers Salad I would regularly eat for lunch when we were living in the UK all those years ago!
Cook 500g curly pasta, stir through a jar of green pesto (we used the Leggo's one - or you could make your own). Then tip on a 200g punnet of cherry tomatos and crumble on some fetta and eat it up (accompanied by a glass of cold white wine). We ate it warm but the recipe suggested letting the pasta cool down before assembling the dish - we couldn't wait that long!!

My kids liked the pasta and dodged the tomatos and cheese. But I don't let that stop me cooking things I like to eat!!Go and check out more Easy Peasy Dinner Winners over at Frog, Goose & Bear!
