Ham, Pea and Mushroom Pasta Salad

This was a really simple yet flavourful pasta dish, creamy yet not heavy and packed full of lovely veggies.

Ham, Pea and Mushroom Pasta Salad (from Simple Nourished Living)
(Serves 4)

250g dried pasta shapes
150g mushrooms, sliced
150g frozen peas
1/2 red onion, chopped
6 slices of ham, chopped
2  hard-boiled eggs, chopped
For the dressing
1 clove garlic, crushed
¼ tsp salt
4 tbsp buttermilk
2 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
3 tbsp  fresh dill, chopped
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain, run under the cold tap and drain again well.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan with a little oil and butter and cook the mushrooms until soft and golden. Leave to cool.
In a bowl mix together the dressing ingredients until well combined. Add the pasta, mushrooms, peas, onion, ham and eggs and mix well. Serve or pack into a lunchbox.
