Tomato and basil pasta salad

We’ve found it virtually impossible to find a nice dairy and wheat free pasta salad that is ready made – shops just don’t seem to make or sell them. This recipe makes a delicious pasta salad which can be made and kept in the fridge for a couple of days. Perfect for a sunny day!

Ingredients

  • 500g wheat free pasta (I use Sainsbury’s free from fusilli)
  • 6 fresh tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Fresh basil (approx 10-15 leaves)
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Dice the tomatoes, and finely chop the garlic.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the tomatoes, garlic and tomato purée.
  3. Fry whilst stirring for 5 minutes to soften the tomatoes.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the salt, pepper and chopped basil.
  5. Cook the pasta according to package directions, and rinse under cold water before draining.
  6. Mix pasta with tomato mixture until well-combined and then refrigerate.
