GREEN PASTA SALAD

RECIPES/MEALS/PASTA


This yummy vegan and gluten free pasta salad is filled with grilled baby marrow, green peas and pine nuts and packs some extra protein because I used gluten free chickpea pasta.


MAKES: PREP TIME: COOK TIME:

4-6 servings 20 minutes 10 minutes

FOR THE PASTA SALAD:

1 box of chickpea pasta ⁣

1 tin of green garden peas, drained⁣

5-7 baby marrow sliced length ways and grilled on high heat. ⁣

1/2 a lemon ⁣

1/4 cup of pine nuts

fresh basil ⁣

some olive oil ⁣

vegan Parmesan style cheese

MAKE THE PASTA SALAD:

1. Cook pasta according to instructions - I like to overcook mine a little bit so that it is softer (since it is gluten free). ⁣

2. Grill the baby marrows over high heat with some salt and pepper. ⁣

3. Slice the 1/4 of the lemon in thin slices and slice the basil leaves. ⁣

4. Drain the pasta and add to a large bowl, drizzle with some olive oil and salt and pepper. ⁣

5. Drain the peas and add to the bowl. ⁣

6. Add the lemon slices, baby marrow and fresh basil to the bowl and combine. ⁣

7. Sprinkle with the pine nuts, vegan Parmesan and squeeze the other 1/2 lemon over the pasta. ⁣

8. Add some more salt and pepper and enjoy ! ⁣
