Method

  1. Cook the pasta, adding the peas for final 2 mins cooking time. Drain, rinse with cold water to cool, then drain again. Tip into a bowl with the chopped herbs, lemon zest and juice, olive oil and plenty of seasoning and mix well. Cover and chill, spooning out portions as and when. If you're making this for one person, by days 3 and 4 you'll need to stir in a little olive oil or something creamy to loosen the pasta.

This pasta salad is perfect for a simple summer supper when it's too hot to cook.
I added halved cherry tomatoes and bottled, roasted red pepper.
Will be making it again

Delicious! A very good base recipe for using what you have at hand. I added avocado and cherry tomatoes. A wonderful lunch!

This is a really quick and simple pasta salad. Great for whipping up something for lunch when there's not much around the house.

very nice, tried it for lunch and added stir fried peppers and chorizo to give it a bit of sweetness, enjoyable.
