I have become quite adept at making a variety of pasta salads over the last few years. Chuck in a few ingredients with the pasta, add some pesto or mayonnaise or creme fraiche or any combination of the three and there you go! Lunch done in 20 mins. This is no exception, made on on the spot, as what I was going to eat had gone mouldy, it was simple and delicious.
Courgette, Prawn and Pesto Pasta Salad
(7 WW ProPoints per serving)
50g wholeweat fusilli
1 small courgette, sliced
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
handful spinach, wilted
60g prawns, cooked and peeled
1 tbsp light pesto
Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. When it's cooked drain and put under the cold water tap to cool down quickly.
Meanwhile, mist a frying pan with cooking spray and fry the courgettes until they are golden and soft.
Tip the pasta and courgettes into a bowl or box and add the other ingredients, stirring to combine. Serve.
