Easy to make and very tasty, I added fresh oregano. Good hot & cold.

This was a huge success at a recent bbq. The flavours work really well together. I bought a tub of marinated Greek olives with sundried tomatoes and tipped the whole lot in including the oil infused with the olives. Really added to the flavour. This was equally lovely as leftovers the next day.

Made this and had cold for lunches. Left the spinach raw as prefer it more salad-y. Really delicious and very filling, keeps me going through the afternoon.

So good warm and just as good cold for my packed lunch the next day. I used wholewheat pasta, more tomatoes (400g) and only 2tbsp oil to make it healthier

Cooked the pasta the day before, left out the spinach, and put everything else together the next day for a bbq. Also added cucumber.

Very yummy. Grilling the tomato is nice if you want to eat it hot.

I was a bit dubious about this dish, but it was delicious! The only negative - i served it as left overs the next day & the spinach had gone a bit slimey. Will certainly make it again.
