Warm Pasta Salad – for when you are too tired to cook

Warm Pasta salad

Some nights, after a day at work and my half hour on the exercycle, I feel like nothing more than to sit down at my computer and go through my emails, then check out all my favourite blogs but instead I have to cook dinner. Knowing that I will photograph it and then blog about it, does help but sometimes I want dinner to be instantaneous. Well this dinner is next to instantaneous. The pasta cooks by itself and the veges get popped into the microwave, a bit of cutting up and the meal is done.


Warm Pasta Salad








Penne pasta
Coriander – chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
200g feta cheese
100g salami
500g frozen mixed vegetables – diced

Cook the pasta and drain.
Microwave or boil the frozen vegetables.
Chop up the salami, coriander and feta.
Mix it all together and dress with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  1. I love pasta salad, funny thing too is that for a long time that is what I cooked when I was too busy or tired to cook. It looks really good. Thanks for being a part of the YBR :)

    • Pasta is such a great base to heaps of different recipes. You can basically make one up according to what you have in your pantry.
      It’s been fun participating in your YBR.
