Sundried Tomato Pesto Pasta Salad

A no-fuss pasta salad which is great for hot summer days where minimum cooking is required.  In fact, you don't really need a recipe to make a salad.  Just look in your refrigerator to see what you may have on hand.  It will be more interesting to add a variety of different colours and textures into the salad.  Instead of whisking up your own dressing, just open a jar of store-bought pesto and add to your salad.


150g Angel Hair Pasta
1 jar of Sundried Tomato Pesta (190g)
celery (cut into small chunks)
salad leaves
cherry tomatoes
cucumber (cut into small cubes)
button mushrooms (sliced)
carrot (cut into small cubes
salt & pepper
olive oil

  • Cook pasta according to package instructions.  Drain.  
  • Combine everything in a big mixing bowl.  Toss well.
  • Drizzle some olive oil before serving.

  6. Hi Veronica,

    This is one of our favourite too. This pesto is extremely handy to eat on my lazy-to-cook days. Like what you did, I cooked the pasta and just add and mix... Magic! Isn't it? - LOL!
