Tips for making this salad:

This is an easy salad to make, and with these fresh tips this salad will taste even better!!

  • Fresh basil is the only way to go for this salad, it’s the most flavourful!
  • You can use any kind of pasta that you like. For this particular recipe I used Farfalle noodles which were great because they look super cute.  Spiral noodles, and penne are also good.
  • If you chill this salad, I recommend mixing in a little more oil and vinegar. The pasta really soaks up the dressing.

How do I know when my pasta is fully cooked?

If you’re doing the fork test, you should be able to get the fork all the way through the pasta, you should feel some firmness (but NOT actual hardness or uncooked bits). If the fork to spears straight through it with absolute ease then the pasta is overcooked.

How do I serve this pasta salad as a meal?

To serve this as a meal, add chicken or meat balls to the salad.

Enjoy this salad with a glass of your favourite wine, preferably on the deck on a sunny summer afternoon. Enjoy!
