Ham, Green Bean and Tomato Pasta Salad

I'd love to say that the green beans came from my garden but sadly the plants have been decimated by caterpillars and I have none left! However, the tomatoes did come from the garden. This is a really simple but flavourful lunch box dish.

Ham, Green Bean and Tomato Pasta Salad (from Thyme for Cooking)
(Serves 2)

110g dried pasta shapes
170g green beans, cut in half
1 tbsp olive oil
90g cherry tomatoes, halved
1 slice ham, cut into chunks

For the dressing:
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp plain or Greek yogurt
1 tbsp Dijon-style mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped chives
2 tbsp chopped basil

Cook pasta according to packet instructions, add the beans in for the last 3 mins of cooking time, drain, rinse in cold water and toss with olive oil.

In a small bowl whisk the mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard and lemon juice together add the herbs and stir lightly to combine. Put the pasta, beans, tomatoes and ham in large bowl. Add the mayonnaise dressing and toss to combine. Serve.
