Thanks for your question. We used the following recipe to make the pasta salad: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/herb-garlic-pork-summer-ratatouille. This recipe is specifically for ratatouille and we'd suggest using whatever you have, somewhere around 350 - 450g will do it. We also have plenty of alternative pasta salad recipes if you don't have any: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/pasta-salad
