Greek pasta salad

A simple lunch that satisfies based on taste alone. Rather than a bland pappy sandwich from Boots try this beauty! It's even better made the night before and left in the fridge to gorgeously intensify.
Serves: 1 • Prep time: 5 mins • Cook time: 12 mins • Easy 
  • 60g of pasta shapes
  • a quarter of a red onion, chopped finely
  • a few centimetres of cucumber, chopped finely
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped finely (yes everything is chopped finely!)
  • 80g of feta cheese broken into rough bitesize chunks
  • a sprinkle of dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
  • a few fresh basil leaves to serve
  • A few pitted olives - optional
Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling lightly salted water until it's 'al dente' which means it retains some bite.

Combine the pasta with the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, olives (if using) olive oil and vinegar then add the mixed herbs and feta cheese. Just before serving tear the basil leaves over.
