Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    COOK THE PASTA: Boil the pasta in salted water for 8 minutes then add the peas, return the water to the boil and cook for 2 minutes more until the pasta and peas are tender. Tip into a colander over the sink, cool the pasta and peas under the cold tap then drain really well.

  • STEP 2

    MAKE THE DRESSING: While the pasta is boiling roughly chop the tomato and put in a food processor with half the sun-dried tomatoes, the olive oil, vinegar, garlic and about 8 basil leaves. Season with plenty of salt and freshly ground pepper then whizz until smooth. Tip into a large salad bowl.

  • STEP 3

    TOSS AND SERVE: Add the pasta and peas to the dressing, roughly slice the rest of the sun-dried tomatoes and add to the pasta with the remaining basil leaves. Tear in the prosciutto or salami and toss everything together. Pile into bowls and, if possible, eat outside.
