Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the pasta following pack instructions, then drain and toss in 1 tbsp oil. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside to cool, tossing occasionally so the pasta doesn’t stick. Mix the remaining olive oil with the pesto and set aside. Both can be prepared up to two days ahead, then covered and chilled.

  • STEP 2

    Put all the ingredients into individual bowls and serve with a large empty bowl and wooden spoon for mixing individual portions of pasta salad with your choice of ingredients.
