This is a recipe I sort of made up about 4 years ago. I think it’s probably based on something I had once and I just tried to remember the ingredients when putting it together. I’ve got it down to a fine art now, everyone loves this salad. It goes perfectly with snags and steak from the bbq.
And of course it super easy and fast to put together, once the pasta is cooked.
About 500grams spiral pasta (depends on the number of mouths to feed, this will do about 4 people as side dishes)
Cook the pasta and drain (in advance if you have time, it’s better served cold), sprinkle with olive oil
Cook about a handful of bacon pieces, so they are nice and crispy, add to pasta with any oil in pan
Cut about a tablespoon of sundried tomato into little pieces, add to pasta with some of the oil from the sundried tomatos jar (if there is any)
Stir about 2 tablespoons of pesto into the pasta
Sprinkle with a small handfull of crumbled fetta
Toss everything together, and you’re done!
I never measure any of these quantities, it really comes down to how much you like each thing. Each ingredient can over power the others in taste though, so it’s good to get a balance of all of them. Except the bacon, you can never have enough bacon!
