This pasta salad is so simple to make and in the summer the flavours of the tomatoes are amazing. However, it being May and feeling like it's still winter, the tomatoes were not quite as tasty as they will be later on, but I love the simplicity of this dish and the bright colours of the tomatoes.
It can be served hot or cold, you could also add in a bit of red onion or some cucumber to the dish; both make fantastic additions. You could also add a bit of olive oil in if you fancy it, a really versatile, quick lunch or supper to have up your sleeve and a great way to use up the glut of tomatoes from the garden when summer finally gets here!
