Bacon and Pea Pasta Salad

This is a really simple pasta salad recipe, and easily adaptable, change the veg or use a soft cheese instead of goats.

Bacon and Pea Pasta Salad (adapted from WeightWatchers Foods)
(Serves 1)

50g dried pasta shapes
75g frozen peas
2 rashers bacon medallions
100g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, chopped
25g medium fat soft goats cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper

Add the pasta to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 10 minutes, adding the peas for the final 3 minutes. When the pasta and peas are cooked, drain and cool under running water.

Meanwhile, grill the bacon for 4-5 minutes, turning, until cooked. Chop and add to a bowl with the tomatoes, parsley and goats cheese. Add the lemon juice, season and toss to mix.

Serve immediately or transfer to a tub and chill for up to 24 hours.
