Pesto Ricotta Pasta Salad

This is a really simple pasta salad recipe that I made with some leftover ricotta and the stuff that I always have in my fridge. I was disappointed that the flavour of ricotta was not stronger but otherwise this is a tasty pasta salad.

Pesto Ricotta Pasta Salad
(Serves 1)

60g dried pasta shaped
4 stalks tenderstem broccoli
1 tbsp ricotta
1 tsp pesto
5 black olives, halved
2 sundried tomatoes, sliced

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions, adding the broccoli for the last 3-4 mins. Drain, run under the cold tap and drain again well. Leave to dry.

Mix the ricotta and pesto in a bowl and add the pasta, broccoli, olives and tomatoes. Mix well to combine. Pack into a lunchbox or serve.
